A Prelude to Algorithmic Management

Authors: Tariq Khan
Comments: 5 Pages.

Much of modern history involves attempts to formalize the various disciplines of activity in the natural world and in human life. While great progress has been made in the physical sciences, the social sciences, including in this context economics and management, are in their infancy by comparison. None the less, economics has made progress in an attempt to gain solid empirical foundations and with the vast majority of the world’s population involved in management in one form or another via employment and associated organizational and power structures, research into optimal management practices could be considered to have the largest available data sets of any science. Yet it is the very opposite that is the case as there is such a variety of social, cultural, and political differences in any given country, society, organization, or workplace that attempts to establish a perfect management framework have seemed impossible. But progress has been made here as well and in a modern world where every process and activity is now being analyzed under the context of workflow formalism, ultimately in an effort toward automation and orchestration of workloads, even management practices are being examined in the context of establishing formal foundations. It in this context that we seek to define the beginnings of a sort of algorithmic based management where the true critical functions are defined with the ultimate goal of creating teams that perform at their highest with work getting completed.
