The Push-out Scoring System has been extensively tested on more than thousand individual cases before its first publication. In the past six months alone, we have assessed more than 200 cases and publicly disclosed the results.

The Push-out Score on a scale of 0 to 10 gauges the likelihood that a manager was pushed out or felt pressure to leave the position.

An independent, critical examination of the Push-out Score was published by

Stanford Graduate School of Business
(“Retired or Fired: How Can Investors Tell if a CEO Was Pressured to Leave?”) and

Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation
(“Retired or Fired: How Can Investors Tell If the CEO Left Voluntarily?”).

The Push-out Score was featured by

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
(“Did the CEO Actually Get Fired? There’s a Decoder for That”)

THE TIMES
(“Did they jump or were they pushed? Algorithm finds ‘truth’ behind office exits”)
