Artificial Intelligence refers to IT systems that sense, comprehend, learn, and act – and it’s changing the way we live and work. As organizations deploy AI it will have profound impact on jobs, employee engagement and corporate culture. Understanding what that impact will be and how to prepare people for success will be critical.
While technology and big data will be the driving force for digital transformation, this white paper explores why company leaders will need to look beyond the technology and focus on transparency and trust-building while developing a learning organization to ensure the right skills are in place to enable employees to adapt to change and support the successful implementation of AI.
In the next decade AI is predicted to impact nearly 60% of all jobs. While most jobs are unlikely to disappear entirely, the nature of work will change dramatically as AI assumes routine activities leaving employees to handle tasks with the highest requirements for social and creative intelligence.
Organizational change of any kind, including the introduction of AI, requires a deliberate and thoughtful plan for preparing people. The three imperatives for ensuring success discussed in the whitepaper provide a valuable guide for the development of that plan.
