Why regional executives should consider AI education

The process of implementing AI in organisations is a complex one and requires the right kind of training, says Microsoft, which has launched its AI Business School

Artificial intelligence (AI) has completely transformed the way we live, and work and it is continuously changing how businesses will function across all industries going forward. It is especially true in the current global situation, that is forcing new remote working systems, with increased dependence on new technologies.

In recent years, some of the world’s fastest growing companies have deployed AI to solve specific business problems. According to market research from Microsoft on how AI will change leadership, these high-growth companies are more than twice as likely to be actively implementing AI as lower-growth companies.

However, the process of implementing AI within business strategies is not an easy one. Executives and business leaders are often mired by questions about how and where to integrate AI; the cultural changes it requires companies to make; and how to build and use AI in ways that are responsible, protect privacy and security, and comply with government rules and regulations.

Developing a strategy for AI extends beyond the business issues. It goes all the way to the leadership, behaviours and capabilities required to instill an AI-ready culture with the organisation. There is a gap between what people want to do and the reality of what is going on in their organisations today. To equip business leaders with the necessary information and educate them on the process, Microsoft launched its AI Business School a year ago.

Focus on strategy, culture and responsibility

AI Business School is non-technical and offers free online course materials including brief written case studies and guides and videos of lectures, perspectives and talks that executives can access when they have time.

A series of short introductory videos provide an overview of the AI technologies driving change across industries, but the bulk of the content focuses on managing the impact of AI on company strategy, culture and responsibility.

International business school INSEAD, which has campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, has partnered with Microsoft to build the AI Business School’s strategy module. The culture and responsibility modules of AI Business School also place a core focus on data.
