Quick summary of enterprise AI: Everyone wants to do it! Very few are succeeding! Don’t worry! There’s no shortage of vendors to sell you magic pills to make it all work!

33% of projects were initiated by the CEO or C-Suite. These projects are destined to fail if there is no underlying technology need. Yes, I understand that c-levels are needed to lead everyone towards change, but sometimes it is seems just for changes' sake.

Agreed. That's the first thing I thought when I saw the source of the motivation for the projects. "Go get me some AI magic that I can sell Wall Street" is a poor initial ingredient

Could be. Could also be "our lunch is gonna get eaten if this is real and we miss it, so here's some $$ go figure it out." Sounds like we're damning leaders for leading.

Missing context is that projects "failing" is OK as long as you 1) are trying and 2) anticipate a certain failure rate.

Agree, but I'd add "learning" alongside "trying"
