🦾How You Can Leverage:
Why has it taken so long for companies to properly adapt GenAI?
While the tech titans are sprinting to build new AI models at breakneck pace, they’re not investing matching resources in education and training.
Everyday business leaders are looking for AI inspiration in all the wrong places.
The silent AI productivity killer is a lack of GenAI education.
Here’s some cold, hard facts about how the lack of large-scale GenAI training is tanking adoption:
Deloitte study: 79% expect GenAI to transform their company within 3 years.
EY study: 73% are concerned about their organization not offering sufficient training
Forbes study: 83% of companies claim that using AI in their business strategies is a top priority.
Workday study: 80% say their company has yet to share guidelines on responsible AI use
Workday study: 72% - say their org doesn‘t have skills to properly implement AI use
Tech.co study: only 4% of companies have implemented AI throughout their org
Let’s break down why it’s a problem, and how we can go about fixing it.
Ready for the 1-2-3 treatment?
1 – Stop Following Billy Boys 🧑🎨️
The build vs train dynamic is a legit plague when it comes to GenAI adaption.
Instead, we’re drowning in snake oil AI pitches like this from (fictional) Billy Boys. They’re made up.
But Billy Boys are also very real. They use fake engagement on social media to elevate their snake oil solutions in hope you won’t notice they actually have zero experience in anything.
But yeah, totally buy their useless prompts that’ll make you rich.

2 – Take advantage of limited resources 🎯
Sure, there are some great educational resources on Generative AI.
But if we’re calling a Spade a Spade, we’ll also say there’s not enough. Just about every billion dollar company with AI offerings has a few free courses that can teach you the ropes.
(But our 🔥🔥🔥 take here is: it’s not enough. A good chunk of these free trainings are a bit sales-y, and these same big tech companies should be investing deeply in their tens of thousands of employees. We hear from tech leaders at multi-billion and trillion dollar companies frequently on how their companies are more focused on building AI than even training their employees on the AI they’re building. Party foul.)
If you need a little guidance from the big dogs of AI tech, here’s a list of the best of the best of what’s out there.
Here’s some of the best GenAI courses for free:
