Olaf Groth

“AI cuts across other tech and nontech areas and trends. To get to effective readiness, resilience, and ROI assurance, one must view these elements as compounds or clusters rather than independent trends. These clusters change business and operating models, as well as infrastructure layers in organizations. Adopting this perspective allows us to redesign how business leaders transform disruption into innovation and accounts for how technology has and continues to evolve. This program will help leaders detect the undercurrents of disruption in their domains and industries and structure new portfolios of projects and moves. As such, they will understand and practice that AI and emerging tech strategy is just as much about what you do as it is about what you no longer do in order to free up attention and resources for these shifts.”

— Olaf Groth, Professional Faculty Member, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business
