Weekend Leadership Reading: 11/15/19

  |   Weekend Leadership Reading Print Friendly and PDF

Weekends are time when things slow down a little. Your weekend shouldn’t be two more regular workdays. That’s a sure road to burnout. Take time to refresh yourself. Take time for something different. Take time for some of that reading you can’t find time for during the week.

Here are choice articles on hot leadership topics culled from the business schools, the business press and major consulting firms. This week there are articles about artificial intelligence.

From Irving Wladawsky-Berger: How to Support the Widespread Adoption of AI

“To support the widespread adoption of AI, companies must make three fundamental shifts.”

From the London School of Economics: As AI expands, companies must allow employees to rethink their jobs

“Employee engagement will drive the success or failure of artificial intelligence in the workplace, writes Isaac Getz”

From Theodoros Evgeniou: Preparing Your Firm for AI

“Firms looking to leverage the transformational potential of AI should remember that it is still people who determine the context in which the new technology develops and thrives.”

From Lori Ioannou: Jim Goodnight, the ‘Godfather of A.I.,’ predicts the future fate of the US workforce

“Every technology revolution has a unique inflection point. The spark that ignited the artificial intelligence movement was a statistical data analysis system developed by Jim Goodnight when he was a statistics professor at North Carolina State University 45 years ago.”

From Clifton B. Parker: Exploring the Human Side of Artificial Intelligence

“At an AI forum, experts say the arrival of superhuman machine intelligence will be one of the biggest events in human history.”

From Wharton: Why We Need a People-First Artificial Intelligence Strategy

“In this conversation, Dutta discusses some myths around AI, what it means to have a people-first artificial intelligence strategy, why it is important, and how we can overcome the challenges in realizing this vision.”
