However, there are implementation challenges that need to be taken care of. For example:

  2. No consent from workers council: Introducing AI technologies often raises legal concerns which need to be handled with due preparation
  3. Oversharing or leakage of data: Inadequate data access governance and security protocols impede responsible usage of Copilot
  4. Lack of adoption: Bypassing proper change management leads to resistance/ inadequate enablement, reducing the potential impact especially for technologies like copilot that target the entirety of how people work
