Jason Grant (B.Sc. Mathematics & Physics '05) has over 20 years’ experience working in technology and operations management as a CTO (Chief Technology Officer) for small business. In terms of academia, Jason has a degree in math and physics, but that doesn’t really matter because it was such a long time ago.

What does matter is that Jason is the founder of The Automated Method, a path-of-least-resistance philosophy and process that allows executives to spend more time focusing on their business, and less time managing the minutiae of it. Working on the business, as opposed to in the business, is modern business design.                        

Jason embodies his work and his process. His minimalism pervades everything he does, which is why he’s obsessed with business intelligence and user experience – namely the efficiency of cloud continuity. When asked what keeps him up at night, his response is commonly, “The robots are coming.”
