We examine how the adoption of AI is impacted by factors beyond task productivity. We show that AI adoption can be constrained by the degree of interrelatedness amongst decisions in an organisation with low modularity being a constraint on adoption. However, this critically depends on the type of prediction offered by the AI. With certain types of prediction, lower modularity increases the case for AI adoption.
