But they all started

According to Gartner’s latest report, which surveyed 2,500 executives across multiple companies, leadership teams are prioritizing AI projects that will have the most significant impact on their businesses. Here are four scenarios illustrating how organizations are leveraging AI today:

38% of executives invest their AI budgets in customer experience & retention
17% are using AI to optimize costs
26% of executives are focusing on AI to drive revenue growth.
7% are leveraging AI to ensure business continuity.

Start with AI, the right way

Beyond the AI hype, there is real value, and we will help you uncover it. At Design Sprint Academy, we excel in guiding leaders to make strategic decisions and align C-level executives. However, generative AI is complex and vast. To bridge the gap and turn the hype into real action, we partnered with AI ACADEMY.  With a decade of experience in building AI solutions and training over 12,000 individuals, they are experts in the field.

Together, we created the AI Opportunity Mapping Workshop.
