They are more keen to understand the impact of AI in their areas of growth & scalability, competitive advantage, differentiation from a long-term standpoint.

For business leaders, the most important issues are – improving topline, margins, shareholder returns and ensuring a productive workforce – as part of running a sustainable, future-ready business. Artificial intelligence may be the breakout transformation of our time, but business leaders and senior executives are more occupied with trying to understand just how AI can usher in a new era of their business, how it is expected to upend existing business value chains, unlock new revenue streams, and deliver improved efficiencies in cost outlays.
