Effectively aligning operations and talent with advances in technology is one of the most prominent challenges businesses face today. Big data, artificial intelligence, robotics, and other emerging technologies that collectively form “digital convergence” are on the agendas of CEOs and board directors in every industry.
Boardrooms, however, lack the expertise necessary to effectively discuss and implement these new technologies into their business practices. Often, the challenges consist of understanding the “art of the possible,” discovering how that translates into the business context and rigorously executing the drive to enterprise-scale transformation. An in-house C-suite executive with a background in technology and data can guide executives and employees into this mostly unchartered territory.
