About this course

Research from the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Mckinsey shows that AI will increasingly disrupt what we do, who does it and how all work is done – e.g. humans versus machines. On the positive side, AI is expected to add significant growth and value to the world’s economy for the companies and countries that get it.  As such, it is more important than ever that all leaders, managers, executives and board members develop their AI skills to compete and prosper in the AI world. 

However, most leaders, executives and board members lack the necessary AI education, skills, strategies and tactics to create AI-powered business models with platform and network effects. Further, they don’t understand how AI will impact their customers, employees, investors, operations and product/service offerings.
