Strategic Artificial Intelligence: Leveraging AI to Drive Growth and Innovation
Mastering the Business of AI with likeminded peers in our LIVE interactive classroom
Business professionals today are facing a number of challenges when it comes to designing and implementing artificial intelligence (AI) powered products and services. One of the major challenges is the lack of understanding and knowledge about AI among non-technical decision makers. This lack of understanding can make it difficult for businesses to identify the right use cases for AI and to develop effective strategies for implementing it.
Additionally, there is a shortage of skilled professionals who can design and implement AI-powered products and services. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, the robot revolution will create 58 Million net new jobs by 2025. This shortage of skilled professionals can make it difficult for businesses to find the right talent to develop and implement AI projects.
This strategic AI course will help you - the business professionals of the AI era - overcome these challenges by equipping you with a comprehensive understanding of AI and its potential applications. The course will cover the key concepts of AI strategy, including but not limited to Geoffrey Moore’s Four Zone Framework, Prof. Marco Iansiti’s AI-factory, renowned Blue Ocean Strategy and Martin Reeves’ Strategy Palette. It will also provide an understanding of the latest AI technologies and trends, such as deep learning, generative AI and reinforcement learning. Furthermore, the course will cover the business aspects of AI, such as identifying use cases, developing strategies, and integrating AI into existing systems and processes.
The Harvard Business Review book "Your Strategy Needs a Strategy" by Martin Reeves, Knut Haanaes, Janmejaya Sinha is relevant to succeeding with artificial intelligence initiatives as it explores how to adapt to dynamic business environments and how to employ different strategic approaches, which is crucial when implementing AI initiatives that are sensitive to the ever-changing market conditions. We refer to these proven frameworks and learnings in our teachings to equip our students with trusted know-how.

In their sequel book "Blue Ocean Strategy Shift", W. Chan Ki and Renee Mauborgne share additional research and real-world business cases from the companies who adopted the BOS framework. Similar to the first book, this book teaches business professionals how to create "blue oceans" of untapped market space and how to pursue unprecedented customer value, which is vital for companies to achieve success in the highly competitive AI landscape. We have many references to the proven BOS frameworks in our teachings that aim to bridge the gap between product development and business strategy in the artificial intelligence era.

Geoffrey Moore, the author of the bestseller book Crossing the Chasm and advisor to large Silicon Valley tech giants, shares in "Zone to Win", provides decision makers with a clear and actionable playbook to navigate the complex and rapidly changing landscape of technology waves, allowing organizations to create a winning formula for incubating, scaling and integrating new growth initiatives. Artificial Intelligence is another tech wave that is disrupting every industry. We enriched our teachings with the frameworks and learnings from Zone to Win to prepare the product managers and business professionals in the AI era.
