Artificial intelligence (AI) has been embraced by a vast majority of business leaders as a powerful force for building value—in terms of business returns and social impact. AI not only presents unprecedented opportunities for value creation, but also daunting challenges for executives and managers. It will force them to reconsider their own roles and redefine the fundamental operating principles currently guiding their organizations. Division of labor will change, and collaboration among humans and machines will increase. Companies will have to adapt their training, performance and talent acquisition strategies to account for a newfound emphasis on work that hinges on human judgment and skills, including experimentation and collaboration.
By 2025, artificial intelligence (AI) will become mainstream. But unlike prior waves of new technology—which have largely disrupted blue collar and service jobs—recent advancements in AI will affect all levels of management, from the C-suite to the front line. Picture an organization where AI automates scheduling, resource allocation and reporting—taking administrative and time-consuming tasks off managers’ shoulders. Imagine what AI-assisted analytics, simulation and hypothesis testing can do for decision making, strategy and innovation throughout the enterprise.
