An article by Mike Luca, Jon Kleinberg, and Sendhil Mullainathan -- "Algorithms Need Managers, Too" -- was selected by Harvard Business Review for its end-of-year highlights volume "HBR's 10 Must Reads 2017: The Definitive Management Ideas of the Year from Harvard Business Review." The volume consolidates "a year's worth of management wisdom, all in one place. [Harvard Business Review has] reviewed the ideas, insights, and best practices from the past year to keep you up-to-date on the most cutting-edge, influential thinking driving business today."

The article argues that many of the challenges that firms and organizations encounter in using algorithms arise from misunderstandings of where algorithms work well and where they don't, leading to difficulties in managing them effectively.
