There’s no way to predict how artificial intelligence (AI) will change businesses into the future. But what we do know from past experience is that it is set to totally transform entire industries. Accompanying these changes is a real fear that the rise of AI will result in mass job losses and will change corporate culture forever.
How are you preparing your business for the new and unprecedented ways that AI will transform your business?
We’ve outlined a few things your can do to make your company more adaptable and to ensure that you make the most of opportunities and avoid some of the problems that might arise as you leverage the potential of AI.
Earmark AI champions: AI champions understand how to align the needs of different business units with AI capabilities. Key business leaders must support these AI champions, because their support encourages experimentation and boosts adoption.
Introduce AI-focused training: We all know that AI equips knowledge workers with the data they need to be more efficient and productive. But realising these benefits comes down to having a real familiarity with the technology. Training and continuous learning are essential and critical to the realisation of AI’s true potential.
Focus your AI efforts with your business needs: The best way to advance AI throughout your organisation is to use AI to address real business needs. Take the time to define business challenges and then consider how AI can be applied to solve these issues.
Build a culture of security: As we mentioned above, AI can elicit feelings of insecurity and powerlessness among your employees. With this in mind, business leaders must create an environment that promotes stability and security even thought the future is unpredictable.
In the era of artificial intelligence and automation, the businesses that find the most success are those that successfully reimagine their working environments and reorganise their workforce so that they can truly leverage the capabilities of these smart machines.
