Conclusion - AI can't do everything, but it can do a lot

Here is a brief overview of what Artificial Intelligence and hybrid structures mean for your project planning:

  • The human factor is taken into account on both the vertical and horizontal levels of planning.

  • The different perspectives and planning goals of the strategic management and the project teams are harmonised.

  • Deviations from the original project plan are answered with immediate skill management suggestions from the AI.

  • Project planning is adapted to the actual realisable workload of the employees.

  • With an AI, all conceivable arrangements of work and distributions of skills within the project limits can be simulated. Based on this, a warning and a recommendation for action is issued if the success of the project is at risk.

  • An AI can keep an eye on an unlimited number of parallel work packages and assess risks across projects.

  • An AI-supported risk assessment also takes into account the adaptation potential of the employees.

Artificial Intelligence in project management is an excellent approach to make project planning more realistic and competence management more practical. But: An AI always makes its decisions independently of human sensitivities - and for this very reason must be controlled by humans. Otherwise, the algorithm would, for example, postpone "further training of employees" by a year. Human solutions, which are characterised by the human interpretation of flexibility, creativity and pragmatism, are largely alien to it anyway. For example, it is up to humans to weigh up the extent to which deviations in time, costs or quality of a project are justifiable.
