Abstract: AI will reinvent project, program, and portfolio management, but will it also mean the end of project management as a profession?

Gartner states that by 2030 (so we are not talking too far ahead- only 9 years), 80% of the work of today's project managers will be eliminated as AI takes on functions such as data collection, tracking, reporting, analytics, and predictive analysis.

80% of what you do as project managers today, or what your project managers do if you're head of a PMO, Program, or Project Practice, will just not be there anymore. It will be eliminated because AI will take it on, and deal with it, and deal with it no doubt in a very consistent and effective manner.

Peter Taylor talks all things ‘AI’ regarding project management tomorrow, and well into the future. This session explores what this means for project managers around the globe, and how good project managers will embrace this technological advantage for greater project success. Peter will discuss:

  1. How AI will reinvent your project world
  2. How you can prepare for this seismic change
  3. Your opportunity to focus on the people

And provide insight into:

  1. What it can offer you right now
  2. The promise is of a more interesting and productive project future
  3. The stepping stones to consider on the way

So come join Peter Taylor and other project managers from around the globe to see how AI will affect your role as a project manager now, and well into the future.
