Paul Millerd shares a useful article on how consultants can use ChatCGP and Bard for their practice and offers tried and tested phrases to communicate your requirements and ask for improvements.

I think a lot of people are thinking about the current set of AI tools wrong. They are wrong that AI will eliminate jobs or that employment will be radically reduced. I think people focus on these narratives because, well, that’s what journalists like to write about, ultimately those stories get more clicks than “AI helps creative workers save time and do more impressive work.”

Maybe that turns out to be true and I am wrong but I’m not sure how to model that anyway. Most of us are still going about our days in the same way and still have jobs to do.

So how can you take advantage of tools like ChatGPT and Bard today?

I think the most obvious way is to generate new ideas.

To demonstrate this, I asked Bard, googles AI chat tool, the following question: “What are three ways someone might use a tool like Bard that would help them work like a strategy consultant?”

Here is what it said

Here are three ways someone might use a tool like Bard to help them work like a strategy consultant:

Gathering and analyzing information. Bard can be used to quickly and efficiently gather information from a variety of sources, including news articles, research papers, and social media. This information can then be analyzed to identify trends, patterns, and insights that would be helpful to a strategy consultant.

Generating ideas. Bard can be used to generate creative ideas for new products, services, and business models. This can be helpful for strategy consultants who are looking to help their clients innovate and stay ahead of the competition.

Communicating complex ideas. Bard can be used to communicate complex ideas in a clear and concise way. This can be helpful for strategy consultants who are trying to explain their recommendations to clients or stakeholders.

 

Key points include:

  • Gathering and analyzing information
  • Generating ideas
  • Communicating complex ideas
