People will continue to play a unique, essential, and irreplaceable role in various organisational processes. But what exactly will that role be? And how can we combine human intelligence with AI technologies? How can we take advantage of AI's unique skills to enable humans to flourish and achieve better results?

Ethical considerations when using AI

When deciding to implement AI in your organisation, being proactive about understanding potential ethical challenges is essential. How can you identify, address, and manage these ethical implications? By examining organisations that have adopted AI, we'll gain insights into their risk mitigation strategies and learn how they've integrated AI into their business operations.

The roadmap for a successful implementation of AI

The roadmap for a successful implementation of AI

The implementation of AI impacts all aspects of an organisation, including employees, customers, and business relations. A well-thought-out plan, in which you identify your stakeholders, determine the impact, and develop appropriate steps, is therefore critical. What does such a roadmap look like and how can you develop an approach that best suits your organisation? Identifying the key knowledge required to train the employees in your organisation can be challenging. In this masterclass, you'll establish the groundwork for your strategy.

Questions and answers

Questions and answers

Q&A sessions are an important part of the masterclass, as they enable participants to ask questions, examine their own concerns, and determine the crucial (pre)conditions for their organisation. Of course, these sessions take place in a laid-back setting where open discussions are encouraged. Our Q&A aims to provide context, clarity, and insight, benefiting both employees and managers.

Workshop (follow-up option)

Workshop (follow-up option)

The workshop offers an excellent opportunity to collectively analyse the information and establish a consensus on the plan of action. With the information still fresh in mind and through dialogue, we can promptly craft concrete plans, establish mindsets, gain support, and devise solutions. The group effect of a workshop positively contributes to the change process that needs to start afterwards, and provides a good starting point. During the workshop, our Trendforce.one team will be eager to inspire, mentor, and guide you towards a future where AI is tailored to your needs.
