What have you learned and what advice would you share with others who are considering using AI?
I learned that a full discovery phase is key to success; and conducting that prior to formal project planning is a best practice. Ensuring that readiness target dates are accurate and concise and that everyone is in agreement is also key.

What advice would you give to the next generation of women as they enter the workforce?
Inspect what you expect and if you see people catching up to you, it is time to run faster. I would like to tell the women of the next generation to not worry about hitting the throttle and to take the path that appears a little rougher. Without challenge we cannot grow and without growth humankind cannot enter the next century prepared to handle the challenges our environment will place upon us.
