“The Tyranny of Uncertainty” is now available for purchase on

Omaha, NE—May 18, 2016–Accretive Technologies, Inc. (Accretive) announces the release of a new book, “The Tyranny of Uncertainty.” Accretive Founder and CEO, Dr. Nabil Abu el Ata, jointly authored the book with Rudolf Schmandt, Head of EMEA and Retail production for Deutsche Bank and Postbank Systems board member, to expose how dynamic complexity creates business risks and present a practical solution.

The Tyranny of Uncertainty explains why traditional risk management methods can no longer prepare stakeholders to act at the right time to avoid or contain risks such as the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster, the 2007-2008 Financial Crisis, or Obamacare’s Website Launch Failure. By applying scientific discoveries and mathematically advanced methods of predictive analytics, the book demonstrates how business and information technology decision makers have used the presented methods to reveal previously unknown risks and take action to optimally manage risk.

Further, the book explains the widening impact of dynamic complexity on business, government, healthcare, environmental and economic systems and forewarns readers that we will be entering an era chronic crisis if the appropriate steps are not taken to modernize risk management practices. The presented risk management problems and solutions are based upon Dr. Abu el Ata’s and Mr. Schmandt’s decades of practical experience, scientific research, and positive results achieved during early stage adoption of the presented innovations by hundreds of global organizations.
