Our experienced multi-disciplinary consulting teams leverage CGI’s Responsible Use of AI methodology and consulting framework to help you crystallize your ambitions and guiding principles, potential risks and mitigations, and the required technical, operational and governance foundations.
Depending on where your organization is on your AI journey, we assess existing strategies, architectures and operations and develop recommendations. Such engagements typically follow 3 phases over a 6-12-week period:
- Discovery and assessment
- Ambition, strategy and blueprint
- Roadmap and plan
Our strategy development approach involves a mix of online surveys and questionnaires, interviews and, most importantly, in-person or virtual collaborative workshops. We leverage templates and tools to determine your vision, and then develop a tactical approach to implement best practices. We focus on targeted AI use cases to ensure a quick return on your investment by identifying opportunities for improved outcomes through AI solutions.
While a maturity assessment is an integral part of our larger AI strategy development approach, it is also offered as a stand-alone service. The assessment provides a realistic baseline of where you are and serves as a holistic and inclusive beginning to build an AI-powered organization.
Using over 150 detailed capability statements, we assess an organization’s current state across three dimensions (direction, operating models, execution) and a cross-cutting range of “AI Golden Threads.” These threads include: organizational purpose, ambition, stakeholder alignment, data management and flow, data-to-insights, insights-to-decisions, decisions-to-automated-actions, generative content creation and intellectual property, guardrails and ethics, policies and governance, privacy and security, fairness, transparency and explainability, sustainability, regulation and compliance, shared value focus, technology and platforms, as well as agile mindset and practices.
Our digital business agility and strategic alignment platform manages the design, distribution, collection and analysis of the maturity assessment. The platform also provides access for clients to explore the findings in visual charts and interactive tools across capabilities, threads and dimensions.
