This set of 8 nanoclasses focuses on engaging business teams in digital transformation projects.   Each will begin with a half-hour lecture including a Q&A session, followed by a 30-minute team exercise culminating in result presentations, and then an open networking session featuring access to professors.  The following is an overview of the 8 nanoclasses.
