The essential playbook for the future of your business.
What to Do When Machines Do Everything is a guidebook to succeeding in the next generation of the digital economy. When systems running on artificial intelligence can drive our cars, diagnose medical patients, and manage our finances more effectively than humans, it raises profound questions on the future of work and how companies compete. Illustrated with real-world cases, data, and insight, the authors provide clear strategic guidance and actionable steps to help you and your organization move ahead in a world where exponentially developing new technologies are changing how value is created.
Written by a team of business and technology expert practitioners - who also authored Code Halos: How the Digital Lives of People, Things, and Organizations are Changing the Rules of Business - this book provides a clear path to the future of your work.
The first part of the book examines the once in a generation upheaval most every organization will soon face as systems of intelligence go mainstream. The authors argue that contrary to the doom and gloom that surrounds much of IT and business at the moment, we are in fact on the cusp of the biggest wave of opportunity creation since the Industrial Revolution. Next, the authors detail a clear-cut business model to help leaders take part in this coming boom. The AHEAD model outlines five strategic initiatives - Automate, Halos, Enhance, Abundance, and Discovery - that are central to competing in the next phase of global business by driving new levels of efficiency, customer intimacy and innovation.
Business leaders today have two options: be swallowed up by the ongoing technological evolution, or ride the crest of the wave to new profits and better business. This book shows you how to avoid your own extinction event, and will help you:
- Understand the untold full extent of technology's impact on the way we work and live
- Find out where we're headed, and how soon the future will arrive
- Leverage the new emerging paradigm into a sustainable business advantage
- Adopt a strategic model for winning in the new economy
The digital world is already transforming how we work, live, and shop, how we are governed and entertained, and how we manage our money, health, security, and relationships. Don't let your business - or your career - get left behind. What to Do When Machines Do Everything is your strategic roadmap to a future full of possibility and success. Or peril.

In this pioneering examination of the scientific principles behind success, a leading researcher reveals the surprising ways in which we can turn achievement into success.
Too often, accomplishment does not equate to success. We did the work but didn't get the promotion; we played hard but weren't recognized; we had the idea but didn't get the credit. We've always been told that talent and a strong work ethic are the key to getting ahead, but in today's world, these efforts rarely translate into tangible results. Recognizing this disconnect, Laszlo Barabasi, one of the world's leading experts on the science of networks, uncovers what success really is: a collective phenomenon based on the thoughts and praise of those around you.
In The Formula, Barabasi highlights the vital important of community respect and appreciation when connecting performance to recognition - the elusive link between performance and success. By leveraging the power of big data and historic case studies, Barabasi reveals the unspoken rules behind who truly gets ahead and why and outlines the 12 laws that govern this phenomenon and how we can use them to our own advantage.
Unveiling the scientific principles that drive success, this trailblazing audiobook offers a new understanding of the very foundation of how people excel in today's society.
