    Can someone please provide me some assistance with this question. Its for an MBA course and needs to be between 400 and 500 words. What are the attributes of a good quantitative analysis model? C.W. Churchman once said that "mathematics tends to lull the unsuspecting into believing that he who thinks elaborately thinks well." Do you think that the best QA models are the ones that are most elaborate and complex mathematically? Why or why not? Please see the attached for additional information to help better assist me. Thank You in advance for all your help.
