I'm not sure it has occurred yet to managers just how much of their job function will be automated by artificial intelligence (AI). This is especially true of hierarchical organizations where managers act mostly as instruments of policy objectives set at a higher level. This article describes pretty basic management - balancing needs and priorities to allocate system resources in an online environment. But if we take a mechanistic view of the institution (which on many accounts we can) it's no great leap from allocating CPU time to a service to allocating budget resources to a project and supervision of the project lifecycle. And (arguably) the machine could do it more equitably and less arbitrarily. Still willing to spend 50K on an executive MBA? Think twice.
