The Tyranny of Metrics
This Description may be from another edition of this product.
In this clear and compelling book, Jerry Muller shows how our attempts to improve organizational outcomes through quantitative measures have metastasized into a culture of gaming and manipulation. Through carefully researched case studies on education, healthcare, and compensation, The Tyranny of Metrics makes a convincing case that we need to restore judgment and ethical considerations at a time when shallow quantification threatens the integrity of our most important institutions.--Rakesh Khurana, Harvard Business School
Have you ever wondered why universities make the mistake of hiring presidents with little or no experience in higher education, or why, nine times out of ten, these foreign imports fail?

Muller dismantles this myth in a brisk and no-nonsense prose that has this reader crying 'yes, yes' at every sentence.--Stanley Fish, author of Winning Arguments and Think Read More chevron_right
