Mindless: Why Smarter Machines are Making Dumber Humans

Mindless: Why Smarter Machines are Making Dumber Humans

Simon Head


We dwell within the age of machine enterprise structures (CBSs)—the hugely advanced, computer-intensive administration courses on which huge companies more and more count. In Mindless, Simon Head argues that those structures have come to trump human services, dictating the ambitions and methods of a wide range of companies, and de-skilling the roles of center type staff within the approach. CBSs are particularly dysfunctional, Head argues, once they follow their disembodied services to transactions among people, as in overall healthiness care, schooling, buyer kin, and human assets administration. And but there are industries with extra human techniques, as Head illustrates with particular examples, whose lead we needs to stick with and expand to the mainstream American economy.

Mindless illustrates the shortcomings of CBS, offering an in-depth and irritating examine how human dignity is slipping as we develop into cogs on a white collar meeting line.
