Optimize magazine and Operational Excellence

Optimize is a 70,000 circulation magazine aimed at CIOs and CTOs. The topic of the May, 2006 issue is "Operational Excellence", and it contains a host of articles about operations research, one done by yours truly. My article, entitled "CIO as Business Predictor" tries to talk about the role uncertainty plays in decision making and how OR approaches can help address these issues. The sidebars in the article describe the finalists in this year's Edelman Competition.

A second article, entitled "Bringing Unity to Cardinal Health", described how IT and operational excellence go hand-in-hand. There is a sidebar of an interview with Irv Lustig from ILOG on the how IT and OR interact.

The Editor's Note to the issue also talks about OR quite a bit, and says some very nice things about me! I think I will get it framed and send to my mother.

Between this and the coverage by Stephen Baker from Business Week, OR is getting noticed quite a bit these days in the more mainstream press.
