What Is An AI-Powered Startup?
– succesful online entrepreneurs, nor by succesfull AI-powered entrepreneurs, AI-powered startups or AI-powered banks;
– founders of new skill-based online learning platforms;
– people that want to survive the online shakeout that is going on online since 2011 and which is accelerating since the launch of ChatGPT, Midjourney and Stable Diffusion in 2022.
An AI-powered Startup is a startup where all people in the organisation and the business ecosystem as a whole are enabled or enhanced in an integrated way by artificial intelligence.
Focus is on the people with an aligned organisational design as described in the AI-Model Canvas©: including the right culture, the right people & skills, the right core goals & core values, the right structure, the right systems, the right business processes and the right strategy.
Continuous alignment and aligning of these 7 elements is key to become a succesful AI-Powered Startup. Why? Because as was concluded in the article ‘Building The AI-Powered Organisation. Technology isn’t the biggest challenge. Culture is” by the three authors of McKinsey in 2019 (see here)…. it’s often not the technology, it’s the culture. And that is often the case, espcially in large traditional planning & control companies.
The good news is that we know how a culture can be changed in the context od a digital tranformation program or change management program: by using a number of the 7 levers in a consistent way. For instance by recruiting and selecting different leaders and managers (‘People & Skills), by implementing a different organisational structure (‘Structure’) and by implementing different rewards systems and other performance management systems to change the behaviour of people inside the company.
An example is implementing AI-powered hybrid-working and working at home as integral part of an aligned AI-powered organisational design in the right way:
