Leveraging Generative AI for Strategic Advantage

WORKSHOP & OUTTHINKER RESEARCH UPDATE

The Outthinker team and network members have begun research into numerous questions that have arisen following the recent and continuing advancements in artificial intelligence. A top agenda item for all members, the goal of the research initiative is to collectively work together to answer key questions and develop practical tools, best practices, and knowledge that we can use to accelerate the speed and impact of our individual organizations’ adoption and use of AI. 

Questions being explored include: 

 
  • How will business models and organizations transform to cope with these new technologies?
  • What are the implications for decision-making in organizations?
  • How strategy governance, management, and execution will be transformed by artificial intelligence?

This session will include an update on insights gathered thus far as well as a workshop with practitioners and advisors to continue advancing our knowledge and capabilities. 

Rita McGrath on portfolio management, capital allocation, permissionless organizations, and the future of strategy.
