As an enthusiast of Artificial Intelligence, I have been following its progression and integration into our daily activities. However, as AI systems become increasingly capable of performing complex project management tasks — from generating initial project ideas to data analysis, resource allocation, and risk assessment — a critical question arises: What will be the future role of human project managers? Will AI complement and enhance human capabilities, or could it potentially replace them entirely?

Human project managers will still be essential for their soft skills and ability to think creatively and solve problems.

I think that it all depends on us and on how we will use GenAI. In my opinion there are so many aspects in which the human beings can bring added value to the success of the projects, that this could be a motivation for all of us project managers to develop even more the soft/powerskills. Our ability to manage high level stakeholders, to coach, to take decision that are very delicate or discuss then with the Steering Boards (based on data, also produced by AI) will be a key element driving element in future.

AI is a broader term. We are using AI in project management from more than 30 years ago. If you take into account the new architecture published by Google which is the genesis of ChatGPT then I have to say that portfolio/program/project managers roles are dead in the format they were originally defined. Just take a look to 3 layers model published by the PMI.
