Significant hurdles leaders face this year include managing talent, formulating strategies, operational plans, and organizing employee tasks in ways that ensure everyone accesses growth opportunities. These challenges emphasize the importance of good strategy, and are essential for organizational survival. Vijay Pereira, Professor and head of department of people and organizations, at NEOMA Business School in France, believes artificial intelligence (AI) can help leaders undertake these challenges. For example, his recent work concludes that evolutionary computation and data mining can explore large databases or social media to locate potential talented individuals for recruitment purposes. In addition, machine learning helps reanalyze and recognize patterns from data collected from existing decision support systems to help organizations improve their strategic planning processes.
