AI tools are often pitched as means of replacing low-skilled jobs and automating certain processes. As such, cost-saving is a phrase often used in commercial discussions in the context of AI. While this is true to a certain extent, the true benefit of AI is the extra revenue it is able to generate through equipping your people with the knowledge they need. Topics included in this presentation include how to:
  • Ensure your leadership team is aware of the cost savings and revenue generation benefits of your AI solutions
  • Obtain C-level commitment for the time and investment required for upskilling your teams
  • Effectively leverage multiple resources, such as your internal management and training teams and your commercial partners, to provide effective upskilling training and development solutions
