Intermediate results - ’AI in Project Management’ Research project

Are you ready for the Future? 

Since the research institute Gartner made the prediction that 80% of PM work will be done by AI in 2030 - and ChatGpt 4.0 was launched - the news has revolved around AI. There are threats but also enormous opportunities! By now, most of us probably realize that AI is an express train that cannot be stopped. The question is how we use it in the best way for the good of mankind and use it to build a sustainable, equal and fair society. This include how we use AI to run projects.

Why a Chapter led PMI survey?

Most people working in project management have difficulties in relating to the reports from the big research institutes in which industry leaders give their vision for the future including AI.  So, we wanted to take a different approach. We wanted to reach out to PMI members and the project management community who works in projects on daily basis and ask what they think of AI. By knowing about members’ view and opinion, PMI Chapters can support their members and be a thought transformation partner. 

Meet the team in the project and the representative of your country on the webpage 'AI in Project Management' https://cutt.ly/zwo8Urgc Do not hesitate to contact them if you have any questions or want to become a team member.

How & When

This survey is a combination of an online questionnaire - that takes 5-10 minutes to answer - and interviews. We encourage  responders to share their experience in AI implementation projects and using AI tools in their project management work.

The survey started the 1st of June and closes the 30th September. Respondents have been reached by newsletters from Chapters, PMI Chapter webb pages, Social Media and PMI Global AI page, projectmanagement.com and marketing partners.


The result in this article only presents the initial results using Google Forms. No analysis has been made at this stage with considerations to demographics, geography or industry. Those analysis will be done for the final report and presented to those who have taken the survey in December. Those who have not taken the survey will have to wait until the report is official in Q1 2024.
