The aviation industry has always been cutting edge when it comes to developing and using new technology, most notably the autopilot function in aircraft.  But there are no unmixed blessings in life and technology is no exception.  The Hazards of Going on Autopilot.” from the New Yorker begins by looking at the use of autopilot technology, and the unforeseen hazards that have arisen by our reliance on it when we fly…. and then examines how this reliance may imperil us in other areas of life and business where computer technology has come between us and the outcomes we expect.  As Leaders, we can not rely on technology to carry out the higher order of thinking. If computers make us more productive, we need the use the reclaimed time to perform other value added thinking.
