About Session: 03
The origin of strategy is a plan of action. So, one should plan from where they have been or are, to establish the path forward. Enterprise strategy is the brainchild of leadership and management to optimize the performance of their enterprise. The strategy identifies the empirical games that an enterprise should play to achieve its goals and objectives. “Empirical games,” because the goals and objectives within an enterprise’s strategy are based on observation, practical experience, and experimentation, rather than fact-based evidence. Although many organizations do have key performance indicators (KPIs) that are captured, modeled, and analyzed, it is questionable if these KPIs adequately represent the value performance drivers within the enterprise. Current KPIs are sometimes thought to be proxy-based or anecdotal; a casual or informal collection of data used in strategy formulation.
However, there is a synergistic relationship between artificial intelligence (AI) and building a plan of action that dynamically guides the enterprise to success. Knowing how and where AI fits into the strategic management process and the changes that are necessary to achieve its integration are the questions to be answered. Strategy formulation forces one to look at the changing environment and position the organization to compete in an ever-changing business landscape. Imagine if there were a framework that facilitated the automation of strategy formulation that looks at the past and the present to expedite access to business intelligence and knowledge to build an enterprise’s strategy. This is the first step to enhancing the integrity of enterprise strategy.
