By Josh Sullivan & Angela Zutavern
Public Affairs | June 6, 2017 | 304 pages |  ISBN: 978-1610397889    


“Much has been written recently about the ability to reach better decisions by application of big data. However, Josh Sullivan and Angela Zutavern take us a step beyond by introducing The Mathematical Corporation. Leaders of mathematical corporations combine data analytics with the mathematical intelligence of machines and their own creativity to enhance the quality of current and future decisions. A must read for leaders striving to stay contemporary in a rapidly evolving world.”

Larry Bossidy, retired chairman and CEO of Honeywell, co-author of Execution: The Discipline  of Getting Things Done and Confronting Reality


“In this interesting and accessible book, Sullivan and Zutavern challenge us to reconsider assumptions about machines ‘taking over,’ relegating the human factor to a bygone era. Their hopeful alternative scenario for the future instead clearly shows the importance of leaders and employees who work creatively in symbiosis with machines to achieve greater productivity, better innovation and higher profits.”

Amy Webb, founder and CEO of the Future Today Institute and author of The Signals are Talking


“Josh Sullivan and Angela Zutavern offer a riveting account of the explosive new combination of machine intelligence and executive imagination. Company managers are solving stubborn problems as never before in areas as diverse as health, mobility and security, and The Mathematical Corporation is a compelling call for the digital mastery of market complexity—now.”
