In programming, we think of optimization as writing code in as few lines as possible to minimize the time required for programs to run while maximizing their efficiencies. In marketing, we look for the promotions that will give away the least amount of discount and generate the highest level of sales in order to optimize gross profit. In circulation planning, we seek the combination of fewest contacts for greatest level of conversion. In design, the desired status is the perfect balance between production speed and artistic expression. We build web sites and tag words to them in order for search engines to send us the maximum number of browsers who are specifically interested in our products. In everyday life, we think of this as seeking the most bang for the buck. In all areas, the quest to optimize is the formula for success.
