Organizational deep dive – W.I.S.E. Management of AI (half or full day session)

Artificial intelligence (AI) has entered the realm of organizations, and it is rapidly changing how organizations do business, how employees work, and how people live. AI has unique properties, and implementation of AI requires a transformation of how work is organized. Wisely implementing AI in organizations requires including Work-related insights, Interdisciplinary knowledge, a Socio-technial change process, and Ethical awareness (W.I.S.E.).

In this in-house session we help organisations to assess how these systems work, what work processes AI could support in your organisation, and how you would organise for it. What does it mean for the different types of users and processes involved and the role of management herein. We will discuss key findings from our newly launched AI management book [order a Dutch copy here], featuring rich cases at e.g. KLM and ABN Amro. Participants will work with our W.I.S.E. framework to help managers organise for a successful implementation and use of AI in their organization. 

This session is for organisations that are involved in the development, implementation and/or use of AI in their work processes.

 Max 15 participants.

Full day session only: can also include e.g. developers or end-users depending on intake session.  

Duration: 4 hours, to be delivered across pre-work and during the session

  • The what and why of  AI? Hear a brief introduction to AI, its core objectives, use cases, and the reasons behind its fast-paced adoption. Understand the technological fundamentals of AI
  • What AI could do for your organization? Brainstorm key use cases for AI in your organization.
