A Guide for Managers, Employees & HR Professionals


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 strategy and the right business processes.

These elements are also called the 7 levers of change in the innovative new AI-Powered reference model, describing your AI-Powered Business Model with the AI-Model Canvas©, as you can see here:

Continuous alignment and aligning of these 7 elements in the AI-powered organizational design in the middle, 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, especially in large traditional planning & control companies as many corporates are or governmental organizations.

The good news is that we know how a culture can be changed in the context of 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 and business processes 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, as AI-powered structure:
