 Home: Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century
In 1994 the MIT Sloan School of Management launched a bold initiative in research and education called "Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century."

At this conference, the findings of the six-year effort were presented along with a manifesto for what we propose as an important way of thinking about the organizations of the next century.
In 2003, the major results of the Initiative were published in a book with the same name: Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century.

While we regret that there will be a negative impact on the range of information resources available to faculty and students this year, the decisions were necessary and responsible given MIT’s current fiscal situation and the limited options these publishers provide.
