The Mathematical Corporation: Coming Soon to Your Entity?

Course Overview
The most powerful weapon in business today is the alliance between the mathematical abilities of machines and the imaginative human intellect of business leaders. Together, they form the components of a mathematical corporation, which is the title of a new book by Josh Sullivan and Angela Zutavern of Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. In this segment, they provide us with an understanding of how smart organizations, and their financial executives, can create and manage the essential partnership of humans and machines.

  • Identify why the "machine age" is similar to, and different from, previous revolutions;
  • Define the role of leaders in a mathematical corporation;
  • Explain how you can create value by giving away data;
