Research: What Companies Don’t Know About How Workers Use AI

Summary.   
Leaders who are exploring how AI might fit into their business operations must not only navigate a vast and ever-changing landscape of tools, but they must also facilitate a significant cultural shift within their organizations. But research shows that leaders do not fully understand their employees’ use of, and readiness for, AI. In addition, a significant number of Americans do not trust business’ use of AI. This article offers three recommendations for leaders to find the right balance of control and trust around AI, including measuring how their employees currently use AI, cultivating trust by empowering managers, and adopting a purpose-led AI strategy that is driven by the company’s purpose instead of a rules-heavy strategy that is driven by fear.

Kyiv CIO Pivots Digital Strategy When Bombs Begin To Fall

Kyiv’s wartime CIO can teach IT leaders from all types of industries how to better prepare for and respond to unpredictable events.

When Oleg Polovynko became chief information officer (CIO) for the city of Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, his five-year IT strategic plan was ambitious yet directionally predictable. Consistent with global urban trends, city leaders wanted more high-quality digital services for their community. However, in February 2022, one year into Polovynko’s carefully planned strategy, everything suddenly changed. His country and city were plunged into a war that would derail everything and necessitate a completely different focus.

AI should replace clueless managers, not workers

Important article outlining the methods and algorithms for replacing bad managers with Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the typical corporate tech office space, including overview of human behavior and predictability, common characteristics of bad managers, ideas and tricks for how to replicate bad management habits, other wonderful rightsizing [sic] solutions, and more

Recently, there has been a great deal of Internet chatter over the AI revolution, disruption and similar nonsense. A bunch of companies have developed sophisticated tools, you can interact with these tools using "natural" language, and all of a sudden, it’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) everywhere, everything. Just like the fads of touch and smart this that a decade back. Boring. Worst of all, there’s this whole talk about how AI will disrupt the modern workplace. Specifically, how AI can or should replace human workers. Sure, except those ought to be clueless middle-level managers, and not ordinary grunts. Let’s elaborate.

HR says biz leaders scared RTO policy causes staff attrition • The Register

So why not drop the policy? Productivity bias or productivity paranoia perhaps

Evidence is mounting that tech companies’ policies demanding staff return to the office are only serving to drive out the talent that became accustomed to remote work.

According to a Gartner-led survey of 3,500 employees in the tech industry undertaken in November 2023, 19 percent of non-executives said they’d quit over a return-to-office mandate, and an even larger proportion in management positions expressed similar sentiments.
