The integration of AI initiatives into an organization’s current change portfolio is an indicator of the seriousness with which it commits to the digital future. These initiatives vary in size and complexity, ranging from incremental improvements to radical innovations. It is crucial that these projects are not only initiated but also aligned with the overall business strategy and have clear, defined objectives.
Clarifying the priorities of AI projects across the entire organization is a key aspect of successful execution. Without a common understanding of objectives, execution can become fragmented and lose cohesion. It’s critical that everyone, from top management to the work floor, not only knows what the priorities are but also understands how their role contributes to achieving these goals.
The development of AI within an organization should be approached with multidisciplinary collaboration. Teams with diverse skills and backgrounds can provide richer insights and stimulate innovation. Fostering a culture where teams learn from each other and share best practices is as important as the composition of the teams themselves.
The capacity of employees to adapt to new working methods due to AI is a measure of an organization’s resilience. It is an ongoing process, where adaptability is not only expected but also supported by resources such as training and education. This ensures that employees feel comfortable and competent navigating through changes and embracing new roles and responsibilities created by AI.
Finally, translating the AI vision into measurable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) is fundamental to assessing progress and ensuring alignment within the organization. These KPIs must be clearly defined, communicable, and understandable to everyone within the organization.
Therefore, balancing AI strategy execution requires not only setting goals but also creating an environment where everyone is equipped to achieve these goals and where progress is tangible. This balance ensures that AI initiatives are not just launched but also viable, sustainable, and successful.
