Agile with AI: Intelligence in Action
According to Gartner, it is estimated that by year 2030, up to 80% of routine work — which represents the bulk of human hours expended across today’s PPM disciplines — could be eliminated as a result of collaboration between humans and smart machines. Similarly, by year 2030 Agile would have become standard delivery method adopted by organizations across the globe. It means there is very high probability of activities that Scrum Master, Product Owner and the team which are doing today will be automated or will be done managed by smart machines.
AI will play significant role to automate most of the activities involved in the areas of Agile requirement/backlog management, project management, scrum management & continuous delivery areas. Bots and AI will be extensively used to achieve this and thus enabling team to focus on other high value innovation activities.
In this proposed Session, we will help participants to familiarize with industry standard AI maturity levels and popular Machine Learning methods and how to apply them to Agile delivery processes with real world solutions. Solutions include automating routine tasks through to providing concrete, data-driven insights to improve team performance or to identify areas which calls for Agile coach’s attention.
