Útdráttur
Artificial intelligence (AI) has improved and developed quickly in the last years. New technologies can impact labour markets with both opportunities and challenges. The purpose of this thesis is to research the question that had arisen about how AI would affect the project management profession. A quantitative research method was used for the project, where a structured questionnaire was conducted over the internet. The research model was based on the ten project management knowledge areas from PMBOK and asked about AI’s effect on the knowledge areas in the next ten years.
The results clearly showed that AI has a future in project management and will affect the project management knowledge areas in the near future. Management of cost, schedule, and risk will be highly affected due to AI. The research indicates that AI is useful for processes where historical data and information on the internet are used for estimation and planning. Also, that AI can monitor schedules, adjust forecasts, and maintain baselines. AI will have a low effect on knowledge areas and processes that require human leadership skills, like developing and managing teams and management of stakeholders. The main results correspond to what was found in the literature review of AI in project management.
