Learn how to plan projects with artificial intelligence and how AI can act as your digital assistant, augmenting everyday planning activities.
- I want you to take a big step back and think about how much time you spend planning large projects. Now imagine if you could cut that time in half. If you don't hear anything else I say hear this. AI is an absolute game changer when it comes to creating a thorough project master plan, also known as a PMP. And a solid PMP is one of the keys to running an efficient project. Think of it as a roadmap that you and your team can follow. It is a living document that will be periodically updated.
Once the plan has been formally approved it's a guide to help you execute and monitor your project. So how can AI enhance this process? Traditionally much of the planning has been done intuitively using best effort estimation techniques combined with manual resource matching. Although this approach works, AI can take it to the next level. AI emphasizes predictive planning, comprehensive estimation, and automated resource matching.
This enables you to streamline your planning and make better AI data driven decisions rather than relying on your gut instincts. If we take this a step further AI can add even more value by acting as your digital assistant augmenting everyday planning activities. Specifically I'm referring to things like collecting requirements from stakeholders, tracking assumptions, and archiving business documents and agreements. It can even delve in the previous projects and search for lessons learned to help you come up with more realistic schedule and budget estimates.
And as artificial intelligence progresses it will be able to partially or fully take over the work of allocating resources, analyzing risks and planning risk responses. I don't know about you but this is exciting. The future is happening right now and you're at the forefront. However, you might be asking yourself if AI is taking care of all these traditional planning responsibilities then what's left for me. No worries, someone still has to set the criteria that AI initially uses.
And projects will need to be integrated and presented to stakeholders. Machines are good at collecting and analyzing data flow but humans need to fill in the blanks that data leaves behind.
