Foreword John R. Edwards This book is an excellent exposition of the use of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to generate data analytic insights to make evidence-based decisions, to improve productivity, and to manage cost-risk and benefitopportunity in public and private sectors. The design and the content of the book make it an up-to-date and timely reference for professionals, academics, students, and employees, in particular those involved in strategic and operational decisionmaking processes to evaluate and prioritize alternatives to boost productivity growth, to optimize the efficiency of resource utilization, and to maximize the effectiveness of outputs and impacts to stakeholders. It is concerned with the alleviation of world changes, including changing demographics, accelerating globalization, rising environmental concerns, evolving societal relationships, growing ethical and governance concern, expanding the impact of technology; some of these changes have impacted negatively the economic growth of private firms, governments, communities, and the whole society.
