Destination Imagination and AI: How Project Management and AI are Building a Brighter Future
According to recent reports, Generative AI will have a drastic impact on not only what we work on, but how we work together – especially when it comes to project management. In fact, according to the 2023 PMI Annual Global Survey on Project Management, the top three ways project managers use AI are reporting (34%), decision support (33%), and communication (26%). So, what does this mean for the next generation and how can we help prepare them for the impact of AI on their personal and academic lives?
Destination Imagination, a project-based student driven STEM program and partner of the PMI Educational Foundation, is focused on creating competitions that encourage students to think out of the box to solve the problems of tomorrow, today. Over the last few years, the organization has launched many competitions, including one with Lumen focused on how students could use AI to solve the problems of tomorrow.
