It’s something CFO Amy Hood came to learn when AI was brought into her company’s finance department.

“Her role was to build confidence, excitement, rewards, and a system for people who would feel comfortable enough to, quite frankly, volunteer their own business processes to be reinvented,” Azizirad said. …
