Companies used to rely on human experts and their years of experience to guide them. Now, cutting-edge organizations are mining the data and crunching numbers instead, to come up with more accurate, less biased predictions. As Freakonomics detailed, statistical analysis can reveal the secret levers of causation. But economist Ian Ayres argues that that's only part of the story - super crunching is revolutionizing the way we all make decisions. Beginning with examples of the mathematician who out-predicted wine buffs in determining the best vintages, and the sports scouts who now use statistics rather than intuition to pick winners, Super Crunchers exposes the world of data-miners, introducing the people and the techniques. It illuminates the hidden patterns all around us. No businessperson, academic, student, or consumer (statistically that's everyone) should make another move without getting to grips with thinking-by-numbers - the new way to be smart, savvy and statistically superior.

Tante Emma speicherte noch alles Wichtige über ihre Kunden im Hinterkopf. Heute sammeln Hersteller und Händler in Massenmärkten massenhaft digitale Daten. Kreditkartenfirmen wissen sogar, wer sich in den nächsten fünf Jahren scheiden lässt. Unmöglich? Von wegen: In der neuen Welt des »Big Data« können Unternehmen Kundenverhalten vorhersagen. Oft besser als die Kunden selbst. Mit Social Media, Cloud und Smartphone heben sich die Grenzen von Online- und Offline-Welten mehr und mehr auf – und verbreitern die Datenbasis weiter. Big Data wird Gesellschaft, Politik und Wirtschaft so grundlegend verändern wie der elektrische Strom und das Internet. Unternehmen müssen daher schnell lernen, die exponentiell wachsenden Datensätze intelligent zu nutzen. Die Gewinner im großen Spiel des datenbasierten Marketings werden Firmen sein, welche die relevanten Informationen über ihre Kunden herausfiltern und ihre überlegene Kundenkenntnis umfassend und produktiv einsetzen. Ganz gleich, ob Großkonzern, Online-Händler oder Pizza-Lieferdienst: Datenanalyse statt Datenparalyse lautet das Gebot der Stunde. Am neuen Data Unser kommt niemand vorbei!

Weniger ist mehr! Der Hype um Big Data flacht langsam ab. Bei vielen Anwendern in den Unternehmen macht sich zurzeit Ernüchterung und Enttäuschung breit – aus den riesigen Datenmengen wirklich nützliche Erkenntnisse zu ziehen, ist viel mühsamer, als Technologen und IT-Anbieter gerne behaupten. Natürlich müssen Unternehmen heute ihre digitale Kompetenz erhöhen. Die entscheidende Frage lautet jedoch: Wie nutzen Unternehmen Daten wirklich effizient, ohne sich selbst technisch, personell und finanziell zu überfordern? Smart Data steht dabei für eine sich schrittweise vortastende Vorgehensweise. Der gesunde Menschenverstand ist dabei ein ebenso wichtiger Rohstoff wie die Daten selbst. Ziel ist es, in allen Anwendungsfeldern die Kunden besser zu verstehen, um sie zu binden, sowie damit ihren Kundenwert langfristig zu erhöhen. Dabei muss die Privatsphäre des Kunden natürlich beachtet und angemessen geschützt werden. Dieses Buch zeigt systematisch und mit vielen praktischen Anwendungsfällen, wie das geht. Und was sich bei Führung und Unternehmensstruktur ändern muss, damit ein Unternehmen zum Smart-Data-Champion werden kann.

Dozens of books have been published recently on the errors and biases that affect our judgments and choices. Drawing on cognitive science, their lessons are excellent for many kinds of decisions - consumer choice and financial investments, for example - but stop short of addressing many of the most important decisions we face in management, where we can actively influence outcomes and where competitive forces mean we have to outperform rivals. As Phil Rosenzweig shows, drawing on examples from business, sports and politics, this sort of decision-making relies on mastering two very different abilities. First, the analytical problem-solving skills associated with the brain's left hemisphere; and second, what Tom Wolfe called 'the Right Stuff': the ability to take calculated risks. Bringing fresh and often surprising insights to topics including confidence and overconfidence, the uses and limits of decision models, leadership and authenticity, expert performance and deliberate practice, competitive bidding and new venture management, Left Brain, Right Stuff, the myth-busting follow-up to The Halo Effect, explains how to perform when making even the most difficult decisions.
