Authors Ravin Jesuthasan and John Boudreau, who are work and human capital experts, use an original, four-step approach to help leaders create a precise and actionable plan to decide how, when, and where to apply work automation. The four steps--deconstruct, optimize, automate, and reconfigure--are intended to teach leaders how to create the optimal environment for humans and machines to work together successfully. Reinventing Jobs provides numerous examples and practical advice about ways companies can stay current on technological trends as work and automation continue to evolve.
