Develop Your Gen AI Strategy Now or Risk Falling Behind
Generative AI is the most important technological development in our lifetime. This is the year when businesses must harness the power of Gen AI or risk obsolescence.
The writing is on the wall. The recent EY CEO Outlook finds 62% of CEOs see an urgent need to leverage Gen AI to remain competitive, yet 61% find initiating this shift challenging. Meanwhile, McKinsey identifies Gen AI adoption as the #1 priority for CEOs in 2024. The time for action is now.
Gen AI is more than a passing fad. 97% of executives in a recent Accenture survey believe it will essentially reshape their business within three to five years. Early adopters are already realizing tremendous value, with expectations of 15.7% cost savings and 24.7% productivity gains in the first 12-18 months.
Yet, most CEOs I talk to don’t have a Gen AI ambition or vision. Most companies are still woefully unprepared. A Gartner survey found only 9% of CIOs have an AI strategy in place, with over one-third lacking any plans to formulate one. This lack of strategic vision leaves the door wide open for savvier competitors.
The future of your business depends on getting smart on Gen AI’s potential quickly. You must set the ambition and the vision of how your business can be optimized, accelerate performance and transform, augmented by Gen AI, and equip your top team with the knowledge and capabilities to use Gen AI in their personal workflows and identify company-wide high-impact use cases.
I coach and train CEOs and their top teams, to assist them in becoming more productive, creative and strategic, using Gen AI as their co-pilot. This Thursday, I am kicking off Executive AI Bootcamp: 30 Days to Reinvent Your Leadership, for a select group of 25 CEOs who are committed to embracing Gen AI now and in the future. I have three open spots for CEOs who are energized and committed to discovering Gen AI’s possibilities. Message me if you are interested and, if selected, the benefit you seek to receive from this free training.
Don’t get left out in cold as the winds of change blow past you. It’s time to move to future proof your leadership. Optimize your business for the age of AI. The time to start is now.
