Today, every organisation has access to unprecedented resources for building intelligent solutions. But how they organise, identify and execute on opportunities remains a key source of advantage.
The wave of digital transformation reinforced the success of an iterative and distributed approach to change, yet many organisations have adopted a 'big bang' or centralised mindset for their data strategy. To navigate the Artificial Intelligence (AI) landscape we should look to continuously augment human abilities at scale - in terms of speed, volume or quality - rather than simply look for the next wave of automation. We must also drive organisational learning by executing in small, predictable iterations.
In this talk, we will help you to identify and deliver with confidence on opportunities to intelligently empower your business, customers, team members and other stakeholders, sharing our approach for building the right organisational capabilities.
