John Henry wasn’t beaten by a steam hammer. He was beaten by a human with a steam hammer.

This webinar will draw on mathematician John von Neumann, MacArthur genius award-winning political scientist Robert Axelrod, chess champion Garry Kasparov, war games, game theory, cyborgs, really cool software, and research on the Top Pricer Tournament™. 

Attendees will learn:

  • Fresh perspectives on strategy and decision-making from the Tournament’s 1800+ strategists and nine billion simulations
  • Pitfalls from conflating bad outcomes with bad decisions, and a simple framework to steer clear of the pits
  • Deep questions for strategy professionals to answer

Underlying it all is a cyborg — computer + human — approach to decision-making that offers a disruptive look at competitive strategy itself.

Webinar participants can enter the Top Pricer Tournament before the webinar. It’s free, confidential, and non-commercial. The winner will be announced during the webinar.
