Let's Talk Project Management Podcast Interview with Peter Taylor

March 3, 2021

All the way from the UK we have Peter Taylor: a man with a refreshingly light-hearted take on project management. He’s a speaker, consultant, coach and author of over 20 books, most notably the bestselling ‘The Lazy Project Manager’. He’s definitely in the business of busting myths, so it was no surprise that he gave us a brilliant insight into how AI is going to change project management for the better, and more generally how project management is adjusting to a post-COVID world. Come join us as we gaze into the crystal ball and talk about the future of our industry...

"None of us are freaked out by the fact we don’t actually navigate anywhere in our cars anymore... we use Waze or we use Google Maps or whatever. In the moment of solving issues I can  concentrate on what I’m supposed to be doing, which is driving my car safely and getting to where I want to be. We accept that kind of AI-type assistance in normal life so we can take it in work as well."
"Organisations are still going to need our skills, but you’re just going to have to do it that much faster."
"I think it's going to accelerate the demand for projects. I’m seeing projects being commissioned faster and the expectation of returns to be much faster. I think project managers will be able to profit from this."
