AI’s Value Creation Potential

AI Value Potential

AI’s anticipated impact on value creation remains substantial, with PwC projecting a potential contribution of $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030. But not just PcW, McKinsey estimates an annual global AI impact of $13 trillion. At an organizational level, AI’s influence is evident in the success of AI Achievers, attributing up to 30% or more of revenue to AI and 20% of EBIT. Many businesses seek to draw lessons from these AI Achievers to replicate their successes. However, there are various challenges on the way to get there.

The Factors of AI Value Creation

While numerous organizations commonly turn to industry use cases to derive value from AI, AI achievers have discovered a more effective approach by honing in on the right AI diamonds. Their unique emphasis on AI value drivers has enabled them to generate value in unparalleled ways. In this context, we will highlight the three most crucial value factors and offer examples illustrating how they can be applied to pinpoint high-value AI use cases for your organization.

Challenges of AI Value Creation

AI-Centric Elements

The intricate differences between AI’s value creation elements and traditional approaches pose a significant challenge. Many initiatives falter in understanding unique data characteristics, exploring new business opportunities, and recognizing the disparity between AI algorithms and conventional statistical methods. Moreover, successful AI implementation hinges on grasping stakeholders’ distinct motivation for leveraging AI.

Collecting Valuable Data 

Large organizations face the daunting task of discovering relevant data amidst its sheer volume and distribution. A value framework the RODA approach (return on data assets) are discussed to put a value on data and guide its identification for AI use cases. These tools and approaches help organizations navigate data challenges and unlock AI potential.

Creating Actionable Insights 

Creating accurate algorithms alone is insufficient for generating viable business opportunities. The focus shifts from insights to actionable outcomes that drive business results. We explore the crucial difference between insight and actionable insight, presenting various use cases, including a retailer’s success with AI in improving revenue growth. Various approaches of creating actionability get introduced and examples used to guid through implementation.

Creating Stakeholder Trust   

The success of AI projects relies on building trust among stakeholders, including the organization, employees, and customers. Psychological research and examples from AI Achievers identify key dimensions for trust and how to support them. Case studies featuring industry giants like Google, Capital One, and IBM illustrate how these dimensions are leveraged to establish trust by addressing transparency, responsibility, and ethics.

Managing AI’s Decision Making  

Organizations entering the realm of AI often underestimate the hidden risks associated with this technology. Challenges such as varied AI explainability methods, the influence of training context on algorithms, and the limitations of AI, including lack of generalizability, consistency, and decision scope, are often overlooked. Real-world examples, such as Zillow’s significant financial losses, highlight these risks. The provided guidelines and best practices emphasize various ways to overcome those pitfalls of AI value destruction.
