I took a Mathematical Economics class in my undergraduate days.
Over time, I’ve come to expect the algebraic equations and numbers in all my tutorial questions.
Then one time, my course mates and I were presented with a question with only words. Most of them were stunned. But I was not.
I’ve began to see business in terms of equations when I was still in University.
Assets = Equity + Liabilities.
Gross Profit = Revenue – Cost of Sales.
When I started consulting for businesses, these equations became more complex.
Design Thinking = Desirability ∩ Feasibility ∩ Viability
Student Engagement = (Affective + Behavioral + Cognitive) Engagement
ONE Thing = Talent ∩ Passion ∩ World ∩ Reward
And that’s the beauty of math.
How can you present your philosophy, framework, or concept in the form of a mathematical equation?
