MIT Presents: "Move Over, Big Data!"
Today's emphasis on big data and data analytics may leave some folks thinking that management and policy insights can only arise from the analysis of millions of data entries.

In this talk, managers and policy-makers will learn how simple mathematical models of systems can improve intuition and lead to better decisions. Produced by MIT.
