Progress has never happened without the courage to experiment, and in the business world today, leadership is the essential driver of transformational change within organizations. The AI era leadership is rooted in foresight and a thirst for knowledge, as well as willingness to accept data-driven decision making. Asking the right questions and letting yourself be led by data requires a complete understanding of the technologies involved and is key to re-imagining your business. AI applied in combination with analytics and automation allows organizations to do things differently and also to do different things.
We live in a world where the best possible outcomes in many jobs can be accomplished with the helping hand of an algorithm. Which means that machines will only make us more human. Businesses today need to design processes and cultures around data and people, supercharging them with the intelligence of machines. The human-machine relationship is not just about how AI will influence workers; it’s how workers will influence AI.
Harnessing the potential of AI requires a persevering and visionary leadership that is based on three foundations:
- the democratization of data and AI, and weaving them into the fabric of the whole organization;
- striking the right balance of power in machine-human collaboration;
- and creating a sound ethical framework for the AI-driven enterprise.
As technology becomes more intelligent, leaders must reinforce the human aspect of decision making, as AI takes over the data-driven decisions. So, what does it take to be an AI leader?
- Foresight requires a new dimension in the age of AI
- Courageous senior leaders willing to devote resources to transformational change
- Unwavering focus and perseverance for your company to shift
- View AI technologies as highly important to achieving business objectives
- Have extensive digitization of data and adoption of analytics throughout the organization
Most companies aspire to use their data effectively, but many are facing hurdles. AI is certainly exciting, but is it worth the investment required?
