The Fossa AI Diagnostic

The Fossa AI Diagnostic

The FOSSA AI Diagnostic is a teaching and assessment tool to help organizations create or improve upon their AI Strategy. It is well known that less than 20% of all organizations actually have an AI Strategy and it is predicted that over 40% of all business organizations will be disrupted in the next 5 years. The Diagnostic explains how AI and exponential technologies are being used in organizations today to make them more efficient and how an organization might harness them to gain competitive advantage. Perhaps more importantly, the Exponential Organization (ExO) is introduced which helps increase an organization’s ability to harness AI and increase its ROL (Return on Learning).
