The Push-out Scoring System has been extensively tested on more than thousand individual cases before its first publication. In the past twelve months alone, we have assessed more than 500 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.

The model is based on academic research on executive turnover, proprietary algorithms and a text corpus containing thousands of management changes.

The Push-out Score was featured by The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, The Times, NBC News, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, Vedomosti, Börsen-Zeitung and Stanford University.

NBC News explains the Push-out Score in this video and concludes:

“So when it comes to the high-stakes world of top executive gigs, you may be able to fool humans with vague press releases and beefed-up resumes, but you can’t fool the algorithm.”
