Book description

Most of us view our jobs as specialized or somehow differentiated, but the world of business and management increasingly feels otherwise. For many organizations today, the next big driver of job commoditization is automation driven by smart machines. Simply put, if a job is viewed as a commodity, it won't be long before it's automated. The key for workers whose jobs have traditionally seemed safe: Highlight the tasks that require a human touch.
