How AI Will Shift Operations From 'Command & Control' to 'Learn & Adapt'
Digital transformation has automated many knowledge workers' tasks, freeing them up to spend more time on high-level creative thinking. Though, outside a few examples such as consulting firms or cybersecurity, most organizations today still focus on optimizing operations by 'command and control'. The cyber-industrial revolution will help, if not necessitate, organizations shift from optimizing 'Command & Control' to 'Learn & Adapt' where companies and workers will win by being able to connect abstract trends and ideas into principles for automated systems to build on. Reshaping the organizational structure around learning is not easy, but it is possible.
