The Algorithmic Leader - Mike Walsh
Review by Ron Immink
How do you make decisions? I am taking a bet that you spend very little time thinking about thinking or how and why you make the decisions you make. Let alone how you can use AI to do that even better and consistent.
Once you have read “Principles“, you should be looking at your business in a different way. Before “Principles” there was “Making money is killing your business“. Your business as an engine or combination of (decision making) processes. That is why I started to read “The Algorithmic leader”. Managing and optimising your decision making as a leader, using and applying machine learning.
Algorithms are not some computational incantation that somehow bring machines to life. They are more like a recipe for baking a cake: a step-by-step process (mixing ingredients) to solve a problem The very concept of an algorithm predates the modern computer by several thousand years; it can be traced back to some of the greatest minds of the ancient world who also used algorithms to think through difficult challenges.
The book is a harder version of “The new leadership literacies“. Just add algorithmic to the skill set. Combine it with some meditation and mindfulness to make sure you stay on the right side of manipulation.
