As technology keeps doing more jobs that we thought only people could do, how will humans add value? How will organizations compete? These are crucial questions in healthcare.

He reveals how top organizations across the economy are meeting this challenge; the experiences of financial advisers, lawyers, soldiers, salespeople, professors, and others show the way forward. The good news is that we humans already have what it takes – it’s up to us to make of it what we will.
