Trend #5: Artificial Intelligence Will Radically Disrupt Project Management Soon
We have to embrace technology now. According to Gartner, 80% of the project management task will be taken over by AI by 2030.
Most projects are managed with Microsoft Project, a software launched in 1987, more than 30 years ago. Project Portfolio Management tools offer more advanced features, but are far from being applications benefiting from the latest technologies.
Based on personal research, in 2021 we shall start seeing some algorithms that can predict the success rates of projects, validate the projects' scope, and automatically design a project plan in a few minutes.
The thought of losing a significant part of our current tasks as project managers might be scary for many. However, I see it as a vast opportunity to switch our focus on to more added-value activities, activities that drive an increase in project success ratios.
