The Death of the Project Manager – A Roadmap for AI in Project Management
The fourth industrial revolution is underway, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) taking over tasks and activities usually carried out by humans, ultimately resulting in a dramatic shake-up of various industries, including the project management industry.
In fact, AI is expected to have a significant impact on the project management practice, changing drastically the way projects will be managed in the future, and business leaders welcome the opportunity to address the ongoing low project success rates and to improve business productivity.
But AI cannot be seen as just another tool that will automate administrative tasks and activities, helping the project manager to be more efficient.
Properly applied AI in Project Management will mean much more and will enable significantly better risk management, more realistic planning, more efficient resource allocations, and eventually better project success rates.
This however cannot be achieved by introducing AI tools alone – in order to unlock the full potential of AI in Project Management and provide real value and benefits, project management processes, frameworks, and methodologies must be redesigned, affecting also existing project roles, incl. the role of the project manager which is expected to disappear.
The presentation will outline the cornerstones of new processes and frameworks and explore a possible roadmap towards AI-driven project management, including the implications on roles and processes that need to be considered by project professionals and organizations.
