David De Cremer
Leadership by Algorithm
Harriman House, 2020
Take a logical, structured, balanced look at the implications of bringing AI and algorithms to your firm.
Academician David De Cremer offers a logical, structured and balanced discussion on the implications of bringing AI and algorithms into organizations. He devotes the first third of the book arguing that AI is a strong and imminent contender for CEO. He spends the rest of the book telling you why it won’t happen. His bottom line, however, echoes a growing consensus: Firms should combine the strengths of AI with human strengths. AI will automate many staff and management tasks, but remains eons away from replacing the vital and uniquely human traits of great leaders.
