Leaders who define and effectively implement an artificial intelligence (AI) strategy will position their companies for growth, agility, superior competitiveness, and better resilience. However, while the strategic and economic benefits of AI are considerable, in the last few years, the number of AI solutions and data management components available in the market has grown exponentially, creating implications for defining a business strategy to compete in the age of AI.

AI solutions can only unlock end-to-end strategic value if all managers and professionals in the enterprise learn how to identify, prioritize, and create strategic business capabilities powered by AI and data-enabled assets in their business areas.

The Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Business Strategy training and certification from Glomark-Governan teaches the participants:

  • How to define, quantify, and monetize the capabilities, benefits, and strategic outcomes that AI solutions provide to their specific areas and the overall enterprise.
  • AI and data solutions considerations and implications for their business value plans.
  • A method to determine which areas of the supply chain, and touchpoints of the customer journey, require priority to be enabled or transformed with AI.
  • A structured and strategic method for identifying the best type of AI and data solutions for any department or area.
  • A Value Causation mapping approach for an AI portfolio—from business strategy and organization goals to business capabilities and AI/data technology components.
  • Infrastructure considerations for a new AI-powered strategy, because of implications from functional silos and legacy systems.

The lessons include industry and function-specific Use Cases with practical examples of AI, data strategies, infrastructure solutions, and hub platforms (i.e., machine learning, advanced analytics, RPA, IoT, data lakes, master data management).

At the center of the Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Business Strategy course are the Strategic Agility, Value Causation, and TBO (Total Benefit of Opportunity) methods from the EVC (Excellence in Value Creation) Framework from Glomark-Governan.
