The allure of AI is undeniable. Yet, despite the overwhelming evidence of its potential to drive productivity and creativity, many companies grapple with a gap between their aspirations and the adoption of AI.

Having worked closely with thousands of individuals and companies spanning various industries, I've witnessed firsthand the challenges leaders face in navigating this new terrain. From strategic uncertainties to cultural shifts, technical complexities to legal considerations, and the ever-present need to keep employees motivated, the decision-making process surrounding AI is fraught with unprecedented risks and opportunities.

The good news: armed with the right insights, you can chart a course forward with confidence.  Recognizing this complexity and need for insights, we've developed the AI Activation Process—a comprehensive framework designed to guide organizations through the complexities of AI integration. At its core lies the AI Assessment, a first step that provides insights into your organization's readiness for AI adoption.

The AI Activation Index provides insight into the five areas that are critical for activating sustained AI. 

  1. Strategy. Unified Understanding and Commitment.  Is there a consistent and deep commitment to our AI strategy across all levels of the organization?

  2. Organizational Culture and Innovation. How supportive is our organizational culture towards AI-driven experimentation and innovation, and what resistance might exist?

  3. Technical Readiness. Do our teams have the necessary operational knowledge, skills, and tools to effectively implement AI and understand its risks and rewards?

  4. AI Literacy & Training. How well do our employees perceive the benefits of AI in their daily tasks, and are there adequate training programs to enhance AI literacy tailored to their specific roles?

  5. Governance & Ethics. How thoroughly are ethical considerations and compliance with AI regulations integrated into our AI strategy and operational practices?


Upon completion of the AI Activation Assessment, you’ll receive a comprehensive set of scores and analyses that will help you and the team prioritize the first steps to close the AI Activation Gap.  These scores will serve as both a diagnostic to help you prioritize the next steps and a baseline by which to measure your success.

I love combining my broad experience in AI, business operations, and leading teams.  The acceleration of AI brings a combination of fear and fascination.  My goal is to provide everyone in an organization with the knowledge and sense of agency so that they are informed, engaged, and in a position to integrate AI into their personal and professional lives in a way that is creative and productive.  

If this resonates, let's talk.
