Project HEADWAY: What We Can Automate… And What We Can’t
Some slides used in this video may not be entirely legible on screen so it is best to download the PDF file and follow along.
We have been endeavoring to automate project management quite literally from its very formation. The earliest iterations of support for the techniques of PERT and CPM ran on mainframe computers using similar equations and logic to what we know and accept as project scheduling software today. We have evolved and refined how we think about schedule, cost, resource effort and capacity. We attempt to quantify and model outcomes and benefits. The advent of collaborative solutions has rethought how we think about working and communicating in teams.
This webinar explores what is possible to automate, and also tries to help identify the limits of automation. It considers whether there are aspects of project management that will wholly be supported by automation, those instances where it might provide decision support and also those dimensions of the role that are likely to stubbornly resist automation for some time to come.
If you are interested in the role that software and automation plays—and can play—in supporting project management, this is a webinar that you won’t want to miss.
