There is a lot of buzz around artificial intelligence and its implications. Just like in software development, aerospace, healthcare, and finance, the impact of artificial intelligence and automation can also be seen and felt in the project management sector. Many companies have already started using AI in project management to perform their daily tasks that require human effort through task automation. The effect goes beyond automating simple tasks but is also quite helpful in obtaining performance insights. Whether it’s project planning, quality management, or risk estimation, the use of big data analysis has already started shaping the project management world. The collected data is useful for learning how to form teams, the size of the group, how to include and position team members, and the skill sets needed to manage projects better. Project management tools and solutions have always been game-changing factors. Project management will undergo significant changes this coming year. Worldwide physical and cultural events are shaping every new project management trend happening in the industry. They may even be transforming the entire project management discipline.

For the past few years, project management has become an essential part of a series of industry segments, because it crosses corporate and geographic boundaries, adapting to the particularities of different businesses and teams. And, due to its ever-expanding nature, every year we can foresee upcoming project management trends and predictions that are expected to bring even more advantages to the field. Understanding these predictions is what gives project managers and their employees the ability to be well-prepared for what comes and make smarter decisions.

As mentioned above, numerous changes are happening in the field right now.
