Lessons From Market Basket
An MIT / Boston Review Forum
Registration required, space is limited
There is much to learn from the historic revolt of Market Basket employees and customers that saved its successful business model—featuring low prices and high quality jobs—and brought Arthur T. Demoulas back in control of the company. This MIT / Boston Review Forum will bring together experts in leadership, corporate governance, finance, marketing, operations, and labor to discuss the key lessons learned and how to put them to work in teaching and practice and hear directly from people at Market Basket who made it all happen.
We invite students, faculty, staff at MIT and sister universities and members of the public to join us and offer your ideas on what this case means for the future of American business and the education of future leaders.
Featured in this event are:
· Curt Nickisch, WBUR Public Radio Business and Technology Reporter
· MIT Professors Deborah Ancona, Andrea Campbell, Renee Gosline, Tom Kochan, Andrew Lo, and Zeynep Ton
· Harvard Professors Marshall Ganz and Jay Lorsch
· CEO of Ownership Associates Christopher Mackin
· AFCSME Organizer Kris Rondeau
· Market Basket Executives
You can find Tom Kochan's summary of the Market Basket controversy here. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required as space is limited. Light refreshments will be served following the event.
