How organizations can be digitally inclusive

Amid elevated expectations for generative artificial intelligence and the billions—perhaps even trillions—of dollars of potential value that could be unlocked by nearly all businesses, an expectations gap is emerging between chief executives and their C-suite tech leaders.

CEOs crave growth—increases to revenue, market share, margin, and the amount of customers they serve. But chief information and chief technology officers remain firmly focused on efficiencies, including infrastructure, application modernization, and basic automation. 

Surveys consistently highlight splintered views at the C-suite level. A survey of 600 IT professionals by Salesforce showed that nearly three out of five say business stakeholders hold unreasonable expectations regarding the speed and agility of new technology implementation. At the same time, a majority of CEOs are saying they are “ambivalent or outright dissatisfied” with their organization’s progress on AI and generative AI thus far, a recent BCG survey showed.
