Research shows project failure rates continue to be alarmingly high. Momentum is growing regarding the application of computer-based automation [AI] tools to support project delivery and potentially address this challenge. The talk will introduce AI, discuss the current state of AI project tools and the likely market direction for these project tools. The talk will then introduce 3 use cases and debate if a more strategic approach can be taken to a company’s journey into AI in project management – potentially a better approach to improve project success.
