How strong is your relationship?

20 August 2010
Apparently a US company has created a “divorce probability calculator”. Cheerful eh? It reckons it can work out with only 13 per cent of error the chance of your marriage breaking down, once you give it information like age difference, any history of depression, race difference etc. The tool has been devised by a US divorce insurance company – presumably they’re hoping that if the probability is high you’ll take out one of their policies to help out with the legal costs you could incur if it ever comes to that. So, it made us wonder at SM whether there might be an equivalent for buyers and suppliers? Is there such a system that could calculate on a balance of probability the chances of your relationship with a particular vendor or vendors breaking down based on differences in culture, performance track record, payment history etc? Perhaps you even already have such a tool?
