In a powerful narrative that takes us from the research in the labs to the implementation of predictive technology inside companies, Vivek Ranadive and Kevin Maney reveal how our understanding of human mastery is being applied to the way computers "think." In the near future, the authors argue, the most advanced computer systems and the most successful businesses will anticipate the future much like Wayne Gretzkys brain does. As a result, companies will be able to use a new generation of technology to anticipate customer needs before customers even know what they want, and see production snafus before they occur, traffic jams before they materialize, and operational problems before they arise. Forward-thinking companies will be able to predict the future just a fraction ahead of everyone else with a little bit of the right information at the right timewhat the authors call the two-second advantageand it will transform the way businesses are run and offer companies an enormous competitive edge in the marketplace.
In the bestselling tradition of Blink, Sway, and How We Decide, The Two-Second Advantagewill change our understanding of what makes a company successful.
