According to Zoe Beloff “[i]t is common knowledge that people have long been emotionally invested in their tools, but a profound shift is underway. Today digital devices are increasingly designed to create the illusion that they are not simply objects but subjects, caring and sentient beings. They actively elicit our responses so that while it appears that they are our servants, they are in fact training us, shaping us from earliest infancy. It is we who are working for them” (2018: 7)
Throughout this we have explored shifts in the relationships between individuals, organizations, and the broader society, with management practices. Here Beloff claims that technology today takes on functions of control and command that previously were understood as management.
