As I have met with hundreds of industry leaders over the past two years, one of the hottest topics is how to reliably and responsibly deploy AI within their organizations. Business leaders, hungry to separate hype from practical applications of AI regularly seek advice and examples of others who are doing it right. And as with any major new technology there are the challenges of identifying the right areas to deploy, how to recruit, retain, and deploy resources, and how to measure success. Recent research has shown that about half of high-growth companies are planning to use more AI in the coming year to improve decision making, less than 2 in 10 are integrating AI across their operations.
This is where the newly launched AI Business School from Microsoft comes in. Course materials include brief written case studies and guides, plus videos of lectures, perspectives, and talks that busy executives can access in small doses when they have time. INSEAD, a graduate business school with campuses in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, partnered with Microsoft to build the AI Business School’s strategy module, which includes case studies about companies across many industries that have successfully transformed their businesses with AI. You can check it out for free.
