A.I. Strategy Workshop

Unlock the Power of A.I. for Your Business

Elevate your team's A.I. game is just one day!

Are you ready to harness the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence for your business but not sure where to start? Our intensive one day on-site workshop is designed to guide your business and product teams through the complexities of A.I., helping you craft a robust actionable A.I. strategy that aligns with your organisational goals.

Who should attend?

This workshop is ideal for business leaders, product managers, and cross-functional teams who are looking to integrate A.I. into their products or services and want to make informed, strategic decisions about A.I. implementation.

This is not a technical focused workshop and we won't be focusing on the latest "prompt hacks". Instead, we will teach you a set of frameworks, techniques and processes to enable you and your team to implement A.I. strategically in your product or business, aligned with your goals and current A.I. capability.

  • Demystify A.I. - Cut through the buzzwords and get a solid understanding of what A.I. really means for your business.
  • Assess your A.I. Maturity - Discover your current stage of A.I. sophistication and identify the unique opportunities for your organisation.
  • Brainstorm & Prioritise - Generate A.I. project ideas with our structured brainstorming sessions and learn how to prioritise them effectively.
  • Create Actionable Plans - Leave with a detailed project brief for the most promising A.I. initiatives, ready to be actioned.
  • Resource with Confidence - Gain insights into building or scaling your A.I. team and understand the nuances of the A.I. development workflow.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will walk away with the following set of tangible, physical outputs designed to empower their A.I. strategy development and execution.

  4. A.I. Strategy Roadmap Canvas - A large-format canvas that participants will fill out during the workshop, capturing the key elements of their A.I. strategy. This visual tool will help them align A.I. initiatives with business objectives and set a clear timeline for implementation.
