Power Skills



Whenever we encounter social media posts about AI, the usual comments range from claims that it's the best thing since the internet or it’s here to take our jobs or souls. The fact is that AI is here. AI is the next wave of change, the next in a series of major transformations that started with the move to the cloud, then and currently digital transformation, and now an AI transformation.

The question is, how does this impact a PM’s role? Whether at a personal, project or organisational level, what steps can you take to embrace this transformation and create Excellence, or be a bystander watching your role fade into Extinction?


  1. Should I be worried?    
  2. How does AI impact PMs?    
  3. What's my response strategy?    
  4. Who can I get help from?   
  5. What is my next step?
