AI offers great potential to companies and CIOs who implement it well. Focus on three main tasks when developing an AI strategy. First, link the technology with the business strategy and desired business outcomes. Second, decide how to implement the technology across the business. Finally, facilitate the transition from planning to implementing by researching early AI projects and lessons learned. Now is the time to experiment and think about how the technology could influence your business model of the future. Remember to think in terms of outcomes, not technology, and articulate the reasons an executive board should invest in AI now versus later. Finally, look to bring on or seek out specialized skill sets to handle the data influx and new technology.
