Improve Communication

Current business communication is overloaded with content, channels, tools, and so-called solutions, depriving individuals (and companies) from hitting targets while also harming work-life balance. Artificial Intelligence will help businesses improve communication internally and externally by enabling individual personalization for each professional, allowing for enhanced focus and increased productivity.


With such AI personalization, each individual will be empowered to have an intelligent virtual assistant, helping in taking care of mundane or repetitive tasks, it saves time by understanding the needs and goals and recommends next-best-action to take to utilize time much more efficiently, without requiring any extra effort. In the short to long run, business processes will improve, innovation will grow as employees will clear their tasks, and stress may decrease.


AI not only presents unprecedented opportunities for value creation, but also daunting challenges for executives and managers. It will force them to reconsider their own roles and redefine the fundamental operating principles currently guiding their organizations. Division of labor will change, and collaboration among humans and machines will increase. Companies will have to adapt their training, performance and talent acquisition strategies to account for a new-found emphasis on work that hinges on human judgment and skills, including experimentation and collaboration.
