For the purpose of the discussion, Artificial Intelligence has been defined as “any machine that does things that a brain can do”. Intelligent machines under this definition still have many limitations: we are a far cry from the sophisticated cyborgs depicted in the movies.These machines are not yet self-aware and cannot understand context, especially in language. Operationally, too, they are constrained by the historical data from which they learn and constrained to function within defined parameters.These machines are not yet self-aware and cannot understand context, especially in language. Operationally, too, they are constrained by the historical data from which they learn and constrained to function within defined parameters.A major concern today is whether machines will occupy our space in the job market. Yes, they will. In the same way that many jobs ceased to exist since the advent of the Industrial evolution, it has also started to happen in the current scenario, but at the same time new jobs will emerge. The human being will continue to be necessary to act in a way that machines cannot, that is, through relationships, emotional intelligence, the ability to understand differences and adapt. And, instead of seeing Artificial Intelligence as our enemy, we have to understand that society as we know it will reshape itself, and human beings will be side by side with machines.


These macro key objectives are focused on the following variables:
• Focus on the big picture. The strategic business goals and objectives that mattered yesterday matter more now. Tactics may need to be updated but staying focused on the big picture is critical for business performance.
• Adapt to new ways of productivity. This may include building new virtual dashboards on project or team progress, remote status meetings and team brainstorming sessions, or utilizing different collaboration tools to support remote communications. Whatever the case remains flexible and provide support to project teams and impacted team members.
• Clearly and consistently communicate. Creating a structured communications format and setting expectations for remote work will help keep people focused and productive during times of uncertainty.
• Increase ways for employees to provide feedback and escalate issues or concerns. This will help to gauge communications effectiveness, adoption, and areas of resistance.
• Enable continuous improvement. Training and development, such as virtual team management coaching and collaboration management, helps employees pivot to adopt new ways of working and operate productively.
• Build in elasticity. Adjusting business continuity plans, ensure program is sustainable for the long term with the ability to evolve as developments, continue to change.

This book will permit to develop a consistent theoretical and practical background that can be considered as a basis for further studies, organizations, support future studies related to the change management area, support organization managers to create tools through methodologies that apply good practices to control the change, allow sharing of experiences in order to support other investigations. At the end, the main vision behind developing this project is not to have just simple transfer of knowledge but to engage those who used these books to engage actively in improving the quality this book.
