Artificial intelligence is reshaping business. The technologies that enable AI are rapidly advancing and McKinsey estimates that AI will add $13 trillion to the global economy over the next decade.

Yet, despite the promise of AI, many organizations’ AI efforts are falling short. McKinsey’s research shows that only 8% of companies engage in core practices that support widespread AI adoption. Most firms have run only ad hoc pilots or are applying AI in just a single business process.

Why the slow progress to implement this game-changing technology?

McKinsey’s AI experts have concluded that the fundamental problem is a failure to rewire the organization.

On November 21 the McKinsey partners who authored the recent HBR article “Building the AI-Powered Organization” will participate in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar. They will:

  • Describe the cultural and organizational barriers that AI initiatives face
  • Examine the mistakes leaders make in implementing AI initiatives
  • Discuss the shifts companies must make to scale up AI
  • Define the tasks that leaders must focus on to achieve AI success, which include explaining “why” and organizing for scale
  • Reflect on the most effective organizational structures as well as organizational best practices

If your organization has heard about the potential of AI to transform your industry and company, but is lagging behind in moving forward with AI, join McKinsey’s AI experts on November 21. They will share insights from research with thousands of executives and will lead a comprehensive discussion on the keys to success in building a truly AI-powered organization
