There is a lot of hype around AI. Tangible use cases, however, do not abound yet when it comes to leadership development and executive education. One interesting application opportunity emerges when an AI interacts with individual leaders to explore their adaptability. At unbeatable cost, valuable insights can be gained for individuals, teams, units, and entire organizations. Change readiness and reskilling success can be measured and anticipated, which is essential in today’s “permavucalution”.

Here are some of the take-aways of the session:

  1. AI is developing so quickly that building tangible use cases remains difficult.
  2. The speed of change renders new solutions outdated rather quickly.
  3. Organizations must focus not on the hype but what truly adds value.
