Get More Done with AI - Faster

Of course, everybody’s talking about AI now, but it’s not always easy to implement it in your team.

Some organisations have already made big investments in AI – with upgrades to IT infrastructure, clear policies about AI use, rolling out AI education for everybody, and maybe even building their own AI systems trained on their own data. For example, PwC globally has embraced AI, investing one billion dollars in rolling it out to all their staff.

But what if your organisation isn’t at that point yet (and you don’t have a billion dollars to spare)? You might think the only option is to wait – and that’s what most leaders and teams are doing.

But there’s a better way.

That’s where the AI Accelerator program comes in.

Instead of waiting for the perfect solution, this program lets you start small and create real value quickly – for yourself, your teams, and ultimately your organisation as well.

What’s more, you can do all this without any conflict with your organisation’s bigger transformation process. In fact, done right, you’ll be helping that process.

Who Is This For?

This program is designed for forward-thinking leaders – at all levels – who are keen to start using AI in their organisation or teams, but don’t know where to start or how to proceed efficiently. It’s ideal for leaders who want to:

  • leverage AI to stay ahead of the game
  • introduce AI in their teams to enhance team productivity and performance
  • start their teams on the AI journey without waiting for an organisation-wide strategy
  • create tangible value from AI without making substantial investments

Key Outcomes

The program helps you run AI projects that solve real problems and achieve tangible goals in a short period – typically 3 to 4 months. Each project typically has one or more of these payoffs:

  • MONEY: Make money or save money
  • TIME: Save time or boost productivity
  • STRESS: Reduce stress or anxiety, or increase well-being
  • ENGAGEMENT: Increase engagement internally (with staff and peers) or externally (with customers and other stakeholders)

there’s also one other BIG payoff – which shouldn’t be under-estimated – from this program:

  • SKILLS: Everybody learns to use and apply AI in a very practical way – during the program and forever afterwards

The program helps you achieve several key outcomes for your team – including:

  • Rapid Value Creation: Achieve quick wins by implementing small, manageable AI projects that deliver measurable benefits in a short time.
  • Enhanced Productivity: Automate repetitive tasks and optimise workflows, leading to significant time savings and increased efficiency.
  • Cost Savings: Identify opportunities to reduce operational costs, enhancing your bottom line.
  • Employee Well-being: Reduce stress and improve well-being by streamlining tasks and reducing workload.
  • Increased Engagement: Boost internal and external engagement through personalised interactions and improved communication channels.
  • AI Skill Development: Elevate your team’s expertise and comfort with AI, fostering a culture of innovation and continuous improvement.
  • Strategic Insights: Gain valuable insights and strategic recommendations from the process, helping you scale successful projects and further integrate AI into your workplace.

Program Modules

The AI Accelerator program has three main components:

1. AI Leaders Lab

Most leaders know AI will play an important role, but are (appropriately) cautious about rolling it out. They have staff who want to get behind the wheel and floor the accelerator, but also know leaders need to fit the car with seat belts and brakes!

This session – for your executive team and other leaders – is a facilitated discussion for leaders to understand how to leverage AI effectively, and also knowing how to do it safely, ethically, and responsibly.

2. AI At Work

Even with all the attention on AI, many people have never used tools like ChatGPT – or they have used it and been disappointed with the results.

This interactive online session for all your staff is a practical introduction to AI at work, with plenty of time for demonstration and Q&A. With this awareness and knowledge, they will then spot many opportunities to use AI in their everyday work.

3. AI Champions

The key to building AI capability comes from fast, high-value, low-cost projects. Each project needs one or two “champions” to lead the initiative.

We identify the AI champions in your organisation, and I work with them over 3-4 months. This includes group mentoring, masterclasses, one-on-one coaching, and other activities to help them stay on track and complete their projects.

Flexible Engagement Options

We always customise the program to meet your needs. Obviously, you will get the most value from doing the full program but there are other options as well.

For example, you might just want the AI Leaders Lab to bring your leadership team up to speed with AI in the organisation. Or just the AI At Work session to lift everybody’s awareness of AI and its potential. Or, if you’re already running AI projects, I can work with your existing AI champions.

So if you’re ready to accelerate your AI journey, let’s chat about how we can tailor the AI Accelerator program for you – and work together to unlock the potential of AI.
