  3. 3. Evolutionary paths to growth THE JOURNEY TO SCALE Proof of Concept Factory In our experience, most companies (80-85%) are stuck on this path. • Analytics buried deep and not a CEO focus • Siloed operating model typically IT-led • Unable to extract value from their data • Struggle to scale as unrealistic expectations on time required • Significant under investment, yielding low returns. 01 Strategically Scaling Only 15-20% of companies have made this leap. • CEO focus with advanced analytics and data team solving big rock problems • Multi-disciplinary teams of 200+ specialists championed by Chief AI, Data or Analytics Officer • Able to tune out data noise and focus on essentials • Intelligent automation and predictive reporting • Catch up on digital / AI / data asset debt • Experimental mindset achieving scale and returns 02 Industrialized for Growth Very few (<5%) companies have progressed to this point on their AI journey. • Digital platform mindset and enterprise culture of AI democratizing real-time insights to drive business decisions • Clear enterprise vision, accountability, metrics, and governance breaking down silos • ‘What if’ analysis enabling improved acquisition, service and satisfaction • Responsible business practices enhancing brand perception and trust • Competitive differentiator and value creator driving higher P/E multiples 03

  7. 7. WHATSETSSTRATEGIC SCALERSAPART? Three critical success factors separate the Strategic Scalers from companies in the Proof of Concept stage. These companies: 01 Drive “intentional” AI. To successfully scale, companies need structure and governance in place. Strategic Scalers have both. 02 Tune out data noise. Strategic Scalers recognize the importance of business-critical data and are more adept at structuring and managing data. 03 Treat AI as a team sport. Strategic Scalers leverage multi-disciplinary teams throughout the organization—with clear sponsorship from the top ensuring alignment with the C-suite vision. Copyright © 2019 Accenture.

  12. 12. Focus on the ‘I’ in ROI The C-suite views AI investment as the cost of doing business. They earmark budget for AI recognizing its criticality for future growth and spend without the need to prove ROI in advance to justify the investment. Adopt a digital platform mindset to scale The two main objectives of platforms are acceleration and extended value. Publishing data on a platform once for products to consume through APIs and microservices is more cost effective. It also drives scale by breaking down silos and democratizing data and insights enabling greater collaboration and innovation across the enterprise and broader ecosystem of partners. Build trust through Responsible AI Responsible AI entails creating a framework that ensures the ethical, transparent and accountable use of technologies in a manner consistent with user expectations, organizational values and societal laws and norms. Responsible AI can guard against the use of biased data or algorithms, ensure that automated decisions are justified and explainable, and help maintain user trust and individual privacy.

But scaling new heights of competitiveness with AI requires understanding the “how.” And at times eschewing conventional wisdom that continues to emerge as AI evolves:
