AI in Your Industry – What the Future is Really Like

Starting from this week’s newsletter, we will dedicate each issue to a unique theme. The goal is to create a platform where people can freely exchange ideas and information on all issues pertaining to the consulting industry. You will find the scheduled themes for the coming months and submission method under the “Trend” section of this newsletter.


“AI has implications for management and organizational practices. While there are already multiple models for organizing for AI, organizational flexibility is a centerpiece of all of them.”

The chosen topic for this week is “AI in Your Industry – What the Future is Really Like”, where we want to explore the effect of artificial intelligence(AI) on various industries. It is clear that disruption from AI has arrived, yet many company leaders still aren’t sure what to expect from AI or how it fits into their business model. This Week’s Must Read features an insight piece from the MIT Sloan Management Review, where the editors and consultants from BCG provide baseline information on the strategies used by companies leading in AI, the prospects for its growth, and the steps executives need to take to develop a strategy for their business. Read the full article “Reshaping Business with Artificial Intelligence:Closing the Gap Between Ambition and Action”, written by Sam Ransbotham, David Kiron, Philipp Gerbert and Martin Reeves from MIT Sloan Management Review and the Boston Consulting Group.
