Do you spend a lot of time on predictable physical work, data processing, or data collecting? We’ve got some bad news.
A McKinsey report from Michael Chui, James Manyika, and Mehdi Miremadi says analysing work activities rather than occupations is a more accurate predictor of automation.
Unpredictable physical work, stakeholder interactions, and applying expertise are less susceptible to automation. Managing others is least susceptible — so no robot bosses yet.
This is all assuming current levels of technology. In the future, we’re all screwed.
Spoiler alert: it’s not looking good for accommodations and food services and manufacturing.
