Like McKinsey, I’m a passionate believer that effective focus on strategy is paramount. It’s on delivery of strategy that things get a bit fkaky. Believe me, I know having been a specialist in delivering strategic change in different industries.
It seems that chief executives will no longer need to rely on an army of contractors and consultants charging GBP 5,000 a day to deliver their strategy, they will be able to increasingly turn to machine learning. On a related theme, I have recently predicted the demise of the traditional project manager.
