AI in Project Management: Capabilities, Limitations, & the Power of Emotional Intelligence (Geneva)

AI in PM with DA 1300 300 px


This event will explore the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in project management, showcasing its capabilities and limitations, and presenting Emotional Intelligence (EI) as a solution to overcome the challenges and leverage the benefits of AI.

The event will start with a demonstration of AI capabilities in project management, using real-world examples and case studies. Participants will learn how AI can help in automating repetitive tasks, predicting risks and opportunities, optimizing resource allocation, and enhancing decision-making.

And to spice things up, we’ll use the Disciplined Agile toolkit to plan the project. For those who are new to DA (Disciplined Agile) this will be a great opportunity to get familiar with this. And for those who already have some experience, this will show how far you can push the limits.

However, the event will also address the limitations of AI in project management, such as its reliance on data quality and availability, its lack of contextual awareness and creativity, and its potential bias and ethical issues. Participants will discuss the risks and challenges of relying solely on AI in project management and the need to balance its use with human intelligence and expertise.

In the second part of the event, the focus will shift to Emotional Intelligence (EI) as a complementary solution to AI in project management. Participants will learn about the key components of EI, such as self-awareness, empathy, motivation, and social skills, and how they can help project managers to navigate complex interpersonal dynamics, communicate effectively, build trust, and inspire teams.

The event will feature interactive activities and discussions to allow participants to practice and reflect on their own EI skills and how they can apply them in their project management roles. The event will also provide tips and resources for developing and improving EI skills, such as coaching, training, and feedback. So prepare to take part actively to the workshop and to contribute to the demo.

By the end of the event, participants will have a deeper understanding of the role of AI in project management, its capabilities and limitations, and the importance of Emotional Intelligence as a complementary solution. Participants will leave with practical insights and tools to enhance their project management skills and become more effective and empathetic leaders.
