As we continue our venture into the language of innovation, it is important to keep your customer at the forefront of your decision-making and efforts to improve your business practices. Customer experience and user experience have become increasingly important, especially as many shopping habits have changed due to increased online purchasing capabilities.
As we continue to discuss the language of innovation and how it can positively impact business practices across industries, we are excited to delve into the topic of Artificial intelligence (AI).
AI has little to do with the science fiction scenarios many of us imagine. Today, AI is a tool that we control to make our businesses and personal lives more efficient. In fact, most of us experience AI every day when we use voice commands with Siri or Alexa or utilize our Google Calendar and Voice to Text.
When we discuss the language of innovation and prepare for digital or workforce transformation, it is important to understand how to successfully implement those necessary changes. According to McKinsey & Company, more than 60% of these transformations fail. Many of these failures could have been avoided if the company or organization had understood how to implement good change management techniques.
