AI and the Practice of Management

Dateline: October 28, 2016

Welcome to our Friday WRAP – one thought-provoking idea to think about over the weekend.

According to Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn, the practice of management is about to change in a big way, thanks to artificial intelligence (AI).  He shared his thoughts in a recent Sloan Management Review article, Using Artificial Intelligence to Set Information Free.  Reid suggests,

Artificial intelligence is about to transform management from an art into a combination of art and science. Not because we’ll be taking commands from science fiction’s robot overlords, but because specialized AI will allow us to apply data science to our human interactions at work

He continues with three ways the practice of management will be affected.

1. Better Organizational Dashboards

2. Data-Driven Performance Management

3. Increased Talent Mobility

Has your organization begun to use AI to change the practice of management?  Where do you expect to see the biggest impact?

That’s a WRAP!  Have a great weekend!
