AI Readiness Assessment

The world of AI is evolving rapidly, and the desire to harness its power is strong. Yet, the potential for misuse and putting the organization at risk must be considered. Organization leaders are right to pause before agreeing to AI efficiencies and tools without fully understanding how AI will be implemented, what information it will access, and what critical human oversight protocols will manage it.

BWF’s AI readiness assessment provides an extensive cross-functional review of the organization, its operations, and its systems, aiming to align organization priorities and needs with AI opportunities. The study evaluates an organization’s level of AI literacy, identifies opportunities and challenges concerning potential implementations, and outlines the risks when considering different implementations. The assessment will outline an AI roadmap custom-built for the organization to design and implement AI solutions ethically and effectively. Not all organizations will be ready to implement AI, which is okay. In those instances, BWF will recommend how the organization can progress, prepare, and leverage AI in the future.
