Australian organisations mulling AI use for project management

Strong interest comes as 63% think AI can solve problems in project management

Australian organisations mulling AI use for project management

A majority of organisations in Australia are eyeing the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for project management amid strong belief that it would help in overcoming challenges, according to a new survey.

The survey by GetApp Australia found 44% of 545 respondents said their company is interested but has yet to implement AI on project management.

Among them, 23% said they are now in the process of incorporating it, while 21% have yet to start.

Of all the respondents, 29% of them said their company is already using AI in project management.

Solution to project management problems

The strong interest among organisations comes as 63% believe that AI can be the solution to the main difficulties they face in project management.

According to 46% of the respondents, the availability of expertise and technology is the most critical factor in project success, a factor that AI can address.

"Project management is resource-dependent, meaning it often requires more than one individual to manage complex projects successfully," said Andrew Blair, Content Analyst for GetApp Australia, in a statement.

"AI can reduce that dependency by automating tasks and allowing project management professionals to focus on upskilling their teams."

AI can also provide managers with real-time data insights from ongoing process to help in decision-making, according to Blair.

"Predictive analytics can benefit organisations seeking more knowledge and technical resources," he added.
