"This free online talk (via Zoom) will outline how New Zealand businesses and organisations can survive and thrive in a world of AI-driven change.

Proudly hosted by Waikato Management School, the topic is, 'Business strategy in the age of AI: Where artificial intelligence can confer a competitive advantage'.

It is designed for managers and business leaders, but is also open to members of the public.

Senior lecturer Dr Amanda J Williamson will share her cutting-edge research and expertise in artificial intelligence and domain knowledge in business strategy.

She will examine the vast opportunities that AI and emerging technologies present for business, and discuss how business leaders can start harnessing the value of AI today.

Dr Williamson is a Senior Lecturer in Innovation and Strategy, who was awarded the Waikato Management School Early Career Research Award 2021.

“World-leading organisations now employ AI in most parts of their value chain to reduce costs, and improve decision-making, processes, products and services,” she says.

“New Zealand organisations that do not have an AI strategy in place, and are slow to adopt AI, may quickly become obsolete and irrelevant.”

By the end of the hour, attendees should have a better understanding of how AI can (and cannot) help organisations today; and where to begin with an AI-driven strategy.
