Algorithmic Business Thinking: A Suitcase for Digital Destinations

Author: Paul McDonagh-Smith

Today, when creating the teams, organizations, and societies of tomorrow we invariably look in the direction of technology to lend us a hand. Our visions, strategies and operations are being reshaped by the code, data and algorithms running on our smart phones, tablets, and computers.

As Executive Education practitioners, we’re increasingly guiding leadership teams across a technology chessboard with teaching and learning interventions that evolve how organizations think and act in the digital economy.

In this article, we’ll explore how Algorithmic Business Thinking, a concept I’ve created at MIT Sloan School of Management, enables us to create a common ground between computer science and business science where Executive Education can help organizations convert key challenges posed by digital transformation into opportunities for sustainable growth.
