Generative AI

This resource originated as a primary-source appendix for presentations on Generative AI we began delivering in December 2022. We are still going. We offer introductory GenAI presentations for larger audiences still getting up to speed. We partner with law firms on CLEs that address the many GenAI-related legal and regulatory considerations that add to complexity* and impact strategy.* We lead high-level conversations among informed stakeholders re real-world use cases for GenAI.* Feel free to reach out.

As our presentation grew, so did our appendix. So we put it online. We’ve added supplemental material (not in the presentation) and maintained historical materials (fallen out of the presentation given how quickly the topic moves). The resource is comprehensive insofar as it contains a primary source for every slide in our master deck. But a truly comprehensive resource that encompasses the vast and rapidly evolving subject of Generative AI is beyond our capacity. We’re giving you a lot, for free. But we would never pretend this is everything.We continue to build this resource. If you see a glaring hole, feel free to reach out. We’re always looking to make the content more valuable.

Strategy and Scale in a Complex World

"Courage is knowing it might hurt and doing it anyway. Stupidity is the same. That’s why life is hard."
- Jeremy Goldberg*

Strategy is similar.

Strategy constitutes a set of interrelated choices that uniquely position an organization to win by creating sustainable advantage and superior value relative to the competition.* The possibilityof winning, however, necessarily implies the possibility of losing.Winning requires knowing you might be wrong and proceeding anyway. Losing is the same. That’s why strategy is hard.
