CEO Playbook – Transformation to AI-enabled growth company

Insights | 23 February 2024

According to Accenture report a full 84% of C-suite executives believe they must leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI) to achieve their growth objectives. What’s more, three out of four C-suite executives believe that if they don’t scale AI in the next five years, they risk going out of business entirely.

AI has the power to transform organizations for the better; but equally, a failed AI implementation runs the risk of harming your reputation and operations.

Implementing AI is also becoming a key enabler for the growth. According to Goldman Sachs report there will be higher dispersion between high- and low-quality growth companies.

The CEO Playbook on AI-enabled growth addresses several underlying key questions that are crucial for CEOs navigating the transition towards leveraging AI in their businesses:

  • How can CEOs identify and prioritize AI use cases that align with their business goals?
  • What strategies should CEOs employ to overcome resistance to AI adoption within their organizations?
  • What steps should CEOs take to build a culture that embraces AI within their organization?

The CEO Playbook on transitioning to an AI-enabled growth company offers key takeaways for CEOs aiming to harness artificial intelligence for driving growth and innovation within their organizations:

  • Embrace AI as a Core Strategic Pillar
  • Foster a Culture of Continuous Learning and Innovation
  • Invest in Talent and Skills Development

Rapid development of AI is demanding CEO’s to take the leap with AI. AI needs to be incorporated into the culture and strategy, and CEO’s needs to lead the change towards employees.

By embracing AI CEO’s can ensure they are well-prepared for the future, ready to seize every opportunity, and are set up to outperform their competition.
