Copilot's Summary


The McKinsey article "A generative AI reset: Rewiring to turn potential into value in 2024" discusses the challenges and opportunities of implementing generative AI (gen AI) in businesses¹. The article suggests that 2024 is shaping up to be the year for gen AI to prove its value¹.


The initial enthusiasm and flurry of activity in 2023 is giving way to second thoughts and recalibrations as companies realize that capturing gen AI’s enormous potential value is harder than expected¹. The article emphasizes that competitive advantage comes from building organizational and technological capabilities to broadly innovate, deploy, and improve solutions at scale¹.


The article provides an example of a Pacific region telecommunications company that successfully implemented gen AI. The company hired a chief data and AI officer with a mandate to “enable the organization to create value with data and AI.” The officer worked with the business to develop the strategic vision and implement the road map for the use cases¹.


The company targeted the development of a gen AI tool to help dispatchers and service operators better predict the types of calls and parts needed when servicing homes¹. Leadership put in place cross-functional product teams with shared objectives and incentives to build the gen AI tool¹.


The article concludes by stating that launching pilots is relatively easy, but getting pilots to scale and create meaningful value is hard because they require a broad set of changes to the way work actually gets done¹.
