Decisions Over Decimals: Striking the Balance between Intuition and Information by Christopher Frank, Paul Magnone, and Oded Netzer
About the Book:
Become a confident leader and use data, experience, and intuition to drive your decisions

Uniquely bridging theory and practice, Decisions Over Decimals breaks this pattern by uniting data intelligence with human judgment to get to action — a sharp approach the authors refer to as Quantitative Intuition (QI).

It is the hands-on manual for confident, accurate decision-making you've been looking for; the rare resource that provides a set of pragmatic leadership tools to accelerate:
Strike the right balance between information and intuition and lead the smarter way with the real-world guidance found in Decisions Over Decimals.
