Classical Summary:


The article "Strategic alliances for gen AI: How to build them and make them work" from McKinsey discusses the importance of strategic alliances in the field of Generative AI (gen AI) and how to make them effective¹.


The article highlights that gen AI has the potential to revolutionize business and could have an economic impact of up to $4.4 trillion annually¹. However, capturing the value from this technology is not just about the tech alone¹. Companies looking to move beyond running gen AI experiments will need to rewire how they work to achieve the full value of their efforts¹.


One key component of this rewiring is developing strategic alliances with gen AI providers¹. The unique challenges of working with gen AI, such as the lack of experience that many have in using the technology, gen AI’s instability and risk, and the technology’s rapid pace of change, have made collaborations increasingly vital¹.


To make the most of strategic alliances, companies should focus on three areas¹:

  1. Go deeper on collaboration: Working with providers on gen AI programs requires a greater degree of trust and collaboration than has been necessary with traditional vendors¹.
  2. Zero in on providers who provide scalability, interoperability, and reusability: Achieving scale with a range of providers means understanding not only how well providers can scale but also how well their solutions will work with other components in a company’s gen AI ecosystem¹.
  3. Stay in control of your destiny: It is important to strike a balance between building on a provider’s capabilities and becoming overly dependent on them¹.


The article concludes by emphasizing that the “build versus buy” approach to creating gen AI capabilities falls short when it comes to harnessing gen AI’s full potential¹. Collaborating with providers can offer significant benefits in terms of access to the latest capabilities and expertise, development speed, and tailored solutions¹.
