Breaking Barriers – Embracing AI and Automation for Business Transformation 4

At the 4th of our round table series co-hosted with Emerge Digital, it was notable how the conversation had evolved over the last year. Business owners are starting to ask questions like: what have other businesses done with AI? what sort of ROI have they had? what has been the impact of AI on people, really? and how can I use AI to develop and improve my business. All too often, though, they are still asking where do I start? We still believe that the adoption of AI is not just about the technology. It is about your business, and where there is opportunity to transform performance and disrupt your industry sector. And that means starting with clear business needs and goals, focusing on leadership and culture, and aligning technology implementation with these objectives. People are the key.

The future is unpredictable. Even if we were not struggling through a pandemic that hasn’t been seen in living memory, we cannot predict what will happen tomorrow. There are many potential futures that could unfold, and we could make assumptions based on past experience and probabilities. However, when we have not lived through something before, relying on your gut feeling is not enough. In the HBR webinar: Learning from the Future, J. Peter Scoblic discusses the problems of relying on past events to understand the future: instead, he suggests we must turn towards an imagined future.

Crisis management in challenging times - getting started

As the entire world reels from the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses across the globe are contending with challenges that have appeared almost overnight and endanger their very existence. Crisis management is now more important than ever and not just in the immediate shockwave of the pandemic and worldwide lockdowns; the long term economic impacts of coronavirus will be felt for years and these aftershocks will inevitably see more businesses go under than in these initial weeks and months.
