Praise for Business Intelligence Success Factors: Tools for Aligning your business in the Global Economy

"Olivia Parr Rud does a remarkable job of weaving together many topics in a strategic way. As 'quants,' we're fascinated with data and fact-based decision-making. But success only comes when you consider the human factor, especially effective communications. Making topics like evolutionary biology, complexity science, and systems thinking relevant for business success is a unique and compelling view. As Max Frisch said, 'We hired workers and human beings came instead.'"
Anne Milley, Senior Director, Technology Product Marketing, SAS
