Super crunchers : [why thinking-by-numbers is the new way to be smart] by Ian Ayres( Recording )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gone are the days of solely relying on intuition to make decisions. Today, number crunching affects your life in ways you might never imagine. Economist Ian Ayres shows how today's organizations are analyzing massive databases at lightning speed to provide greater insights into human behavior. From Web sites like Google and Amazon that know your tastes, to a physician's diagnosis or your child's education, to boardrooms and government agencies, this new breed of decisionmakers are calling the shots. And they are delivering staggeringly accurate results. How can a football coach evaluate a player without ever seeing him play? How can a formula outpredict wine experts in determining the best vintages? Super crunchers have the answers. In this brave new world of equation versus expertise, Ayres shows us the benefits and risks, who loses and who wins, and how super crunching can be used to help, not manipulate us

Broken windows, broken business : how the smallest remedies reap the biggest rewards by Michael Levine( )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Small things make all the difference in business" Once every few years a book comes along with an insight so penetrating, so powerful--and so simply, demonstrably true--that it instantly changes the way we think and do business. Such a book is Broken windows, broken business, a breakthrough in management theory that can alter the destiny of countless companies striving to stay ahead of their competition. In this vital and seminal work, author Michael Levine--whose Guerrilla P.R. has become a standard text of public relations theory and is taught at the graduate business schools of Harvard, Stanford, and Northwestern--offers compelling evidence that problems in business, large and small, typically stem from inattention to tiny details. Constant attention to detail not only demonstrates corporate competence, but also shows that the company cares about what the consumer wants. Broken windows--and peeling paint, worn carpets, and poorly maintained restrooms--send the opposite signal: that the business doesn't care. With tips and advice on changing any business to one that dots its i's, crosses its t's, and attracts more clients, Broken windows, broken business goes straight to the heart of what makes all enterprises successful--the little things that mean a lot
