We aren't sure what to make of this Wall Street Journal story (subscription) discussing Bridgewater Associates' attempt to transform Ray Dalio's brain into a software tool that governs how employees should spend each moment of their day. Mr. Dalio's 123-page meditation on radical transparency, life and management principles has been widely read on Wall Street as has his view on the economic machine that governs markets. However, the new Principles Operating System (aka PrioOS), goes to a whole new sphere in trying to transform Dalio's beliefs into positive outcomes. It will be quite interesting to see how this new system performs on what is arguably already the world's most successful hedge fund.
