Sample Book Insights:
#1 The same data-driven technologies that gave rise to such wealth and opportunity were being used in harmful ways, leading to the breakdown of trust, increased polarization, and rising inequality.
#2 The spreadsheet is dominating the story in organizations. Data is abundant, and it is not messy or nuanced like feelings. It feels certain, while hunches are uncertain. Data is a common language that everyone in a global world can read.
#3 Math is all the data flowing through organizations, and meaning is all the intangible feelings and perceptions surrounding people, products, services, and the companies themselves. Organizations have always used data in various ways, but because of technological advances, data has now become a ubiquitous presence in every nook and cranny.
#4 Meaning can be found in many different places in an organization, from how the majority of bosses treat their employees with respect to how the CEO speaks to analysts and how bonuses are calculated.
