Event description

Description

After the success of previous talks, we are pleased to announce a further BCS Talk. BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is committed to making IT good for society. We use the power of our network to bring about positive, tangible change. This talk is supported by OVO Energy Ltd. and Avon and Somerset constabulary.

The talk will discuss the increasing impact of AI on Project Management.

Research shows project failure rates continue to be alarmingly high. Momentum is growing regarding the application of computer-based automation [AI] tools to support project delivery and potentially address this challenge. The talk will introduce AI, discuss the current state of AI project tools and the likely market direction for these project tools. The talk will then introduce 3 use cases and debate if a more strategic approach can be taken to a company’s journey into AI in project management – potentially a better approach to improve project success.

This talk will be delivered by Lloyd J. Skinner who has 25 plus years of project experience working in multiple sectors in both support and delivery roles. He has managed major transformations programmes underpinned by infrastructure refresh. For the last 2+ years he has lead Greyfly who are preferred suppliers to the BBC for programme management and have been developing services regarding AI in PM that tackle the real project delivery problem. He is also the Branch Secretary for the BCS Bristol Branch.

-------------------------

The session will start with registration at 6.45pm, with pre-talk networking and refreshments, talk starting at 7.30pm, lasting approx. 45mins, followed by Q&A, with time allowing further networking and drinks to finish by c.9pm.

More details on the talks can be found on the Bristol BCS website.
