Critical Capabilities - The Prerequisites to Successful AI Deployment

Critical Capabilities – The AI Prerequisites to Successful Deployment

Over the last four years, interviewing hundreds of AI researchers and AI enterprise leaders, we've consistently heard the same frustrations about AI adoption said time and time again.
"Culture is hard to change."
"Leadership doesn't know what they're trying to accomplish."
"Nobody knows what to do with these data scientists we've hired."
etc...
In our one-to-one work with enterprise clients, we've taken the most prevalent, recurring challenges to AI deployment and put them together into a framework of "prerequisites" to AI deployment.
