Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are transforming business.
AI is also helping good managers to become great. Compared to humans, AI is able to crunch numbers, identify patterns, and make faster data-driven decisions.
With the ability to process large amounts of data and spit out trend directions and actionable advice, this application of artificial intelligence can be a vital tool for any manager looking for some quantitative support in their decision-making.
A large part of any manager’s day-to-day activity is administrative work — the necessary but routine and repetitive work that doesn’t exactly stretch a manager’s skill set.
While administrative work may not invigorate managers, it’s perfect fodder for AI.
Applying artificial intelligence to routine management work gives managers more capacity to focus on high value activities. For example, artificial intelligence and machine learning can alert managers when to meet to address risks or roadblocks; it can even set up the meeting and include the right people when issues arise, prepare the right agenda and follow through on actions are excellent AI applications.
Workplace analytics is one area where AI can really make a difference. One of the key things that a workplace analytics manager does is look at space utilization, desk utilization, and room usage to understand common bookings, workplace requirements, and capacities. It’s a lot to keep track of, even with digital tools for support.
The AI gathers measurements on the fly, giving managers the full utilization rates, per hour, day, or over multiple weeks, months, and quarters. Instead of trying to extract the necessary information themselves, they can see it at a glance.
Even better, AI can be used to make predictive utilization reports, directly leveraging past data patterns and trends. Workplace managers can then use these insights to make better decisions about how to manage their campuses.
