Approximately $48 trillion is invested in projects annually, but only 35% of these projects are considered successful, according to the Standish Group.
The waste of resources and missed benefits of the remaining 65% are staggering. However, change is on the horizon, as Gartner predicts that by 2030, 80% of project management tasks will be run by AI and big data, machine learning, and natural language processing.
6 Ways AI/ML will Revolutionize Project Management as outlined by Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez:
1️⃣ More Efficient Project Selection and Prioritization
AI and ML can analyze data to determine which projects will bring the greatest value to the organization, exceeding human accuracy in prediction.
2️⃣ Streamlined Project Management Office
Data analytics and automation startups are already supporting organizations in optimizing the role of the project management office (PMO), as seen in President Emmanuel Macron’s use of technology for monitoring French public-sector projects.
3️⃣ Improved Project Planning and Reporting
Big data and ML can help leaders and project managers identify potential risks and suggest mitigating actions, and soon, they will be able to adjust plans automatically to avoid certain risks.
4️⃣ Virtual Project Assistance
In project management, “bots” or virtual assistants like ChatGPT will learn from past data to tailor interactions and capture critical information, such as PMOtto or Oracle’s new project management digital assistant.
5️⃣ Advanced Testing Systems
Advanced testing systems will soon become widely available, enabling early detection of defects and self-correcting processes, reducing the time spent on testing, and delivering bug-free solutions.
6️⃣Evolution of the Project Manager’s Role
With a shift from administrative work, the project manager of the future will need strong leadership skills, strategic thinking, and business acumen. Teams may soon comprise both humans and robots.
These new tools will transform not only the technology of project management but also the work itself.
Integrating artificial intelligence in project management will have a profound impact, not just by automating tedious tasks but more significantly by providing better selection and implementation of projects through AI and other innovative technologies.
Project managers must be ready to guide their teams in this transition by providing the necessary training and support.
