I am a management consultant with a background in OR and a strong focus on modeling management problems following Forrester's System Dynamics methodology. After years of abstinence from any programming in a spreadsheet dominated industry I discovered Mathematica a couple of years ago and the fascination has not stopped since then.
It seems THE tool - and no, it is not simply a hammer - for the kind of work that needs to be done in my field and I am often suprised anew how far the possibilities go.
