The AI Playbook for Strategy Leaders – Outthinker Strategy Network Roundtable with Eric Siegel

Machine learning (ML) is the world’s most important general-purpose technology, but it’s notoriously difficult to launch. In fact, the success rate of new ML projects is dismal. Outside Big Tech and a handful of other leading companies, ML initiatives routinely fail to deploy, never realizing value. 

In this roundtable, Eric Siegel will discuss his latest book, The AI Playbook, a six-step approach for ushering ML projects from conception to deployment. 

He will cover: 

  • Semi-technical background knowledge that all stakeholders need to lead or participate in ML projects. 

  • A gold-standard practice for leading end-to-end ML projects. 

  • Stories of success and failure, featuring case studies from UPS, FICO, and more.

Learn the essentials that make or break ML initiatives, so you can get them right and capitalize on ML’s value creation.
