Battle of the Titans: Industry Professionals vs. Artificial Intelligence

Gartner’s research indicates that change is coming soon, predicting that by 2030, 80% of project management tasks will be run by AI, powered by big data, machine learning (ML), and natural language processing.

At the monthly meeting of PMI Bulgaria Chapter co-organised with Women in Agile Bulgaria, we have touched upon the opportunity of including AI in your toolbox as project managers and agile coaches to help you select, define and implement projects more successfully.

During the panel discussion we have talked about:
  • what is AI and its value for project/product management today
  • can we trust AI tools or rather use them with pragmatic caution
  • will AI eventually replace human project/product managers and agile coaches
We've had loads of questions during the event, so we have written a summary page with AI tools (such as ChatGPT) that can be used as complementary tools for project management professionals - here is a copy you can get: AI in PM
