Projects are human endeavours
People are at the heart of successful projects; they drive change and collaborate on new ways of working. Every project success or failure can be traced to the basics of human emotion and interaction. Information is slow to travel to those that need it, and the truth doesn’t always come through to inform decisions. People are everything.
The importance of gaining a deeper understanding of how people engage with each other – below their surface level interactions – is being enabled by new technologies designed to surface underlying emotional interests through AI enhanced data analysis from collaboration and productivity tools and platforms.
Understanding when teams are confused, concerned, disinterested, experiencing cultural or social issues or generally lacking confidence can be a powerful tool in proactively managing issues to discover what team members really care about before they turn into major blowouts.
And while technology is critical in helping teams perform at their best, technology alone won’t overcome issues with culture or organisational design and in many cases, it will expose weaknesses and compound existing issues.
The balance between using technology to enhance and understand team performance and aligning culture, organisational models and transformation aspirations are key challenges we tackle with our clients.

Success by design.
In complex, high-risk and often asset-intensive businesses, ensuring efficiency at scale is critical to sustainability and competitiveness.
Understanding your value chain is the first step in identifying the executable processes which can be delivered with an optimal blend of automation and human interaction; and the right mix of roles, functions and best-fit technology to make it happen.
Effective talent management and optimising organisational performance requires accepted accountabilities, efficient technology-enabled work practices and visible and clear capability expectations.
Our approach to achieving organisational excellence is grounded in practical recommendations built on well-understood operating models and an understanding of how technology can enhance team interactions and proactively address issues.

A culture of clarity.
Cultural dynamics can make or break your project improvement and transformation programs. However, identifying and challenging the underlying causes of a low-performance culture is anything but easy.
Is your culture really about empowerment, or focused on control? How do your stated objectives translate into action with the executive, senior leaders and frontline teams?
Our role is to cut through the surface interactions and understand how things really work and why. We work with teams throughout the organisation to assess the fit between the current culture, the desired culture and the change required to achieve your transformation objectives.
From there we make recommendations on organisational models which better support your desired culture and map a change program which aligns organisational design and cultural dynamics to enable successful transformation.

Predict and learn with AI
The use of artificial intelligence in monitoring project data lays the foundation for insights and early warning systems and will connect people with projects in ways you may never have thought possible. AI and automation have emerged as a driving force in improving engagement and gives teams and individuals the insight and transparency they need to make better decisions.
The opportunity to take advantage of a robotic digital workforce to automate mundane tasks and support the high-value work of your employees increases ROI, reduces the likelihood of human error and ultimately enables high performance. These initiatives can be delivered in as little as a few months and the effects are immediate.
Beyond this, artificial intelligence and machine learning gives organisations the capability to scale collective insight beyond traditional collaboration contexts and team boundaries. Data from projects and teams previously not connected or collected, can now be processed and synthesised into meaningful insight and captured as organisational knowledge.
Predictive analysis and insight
Understand how your team feels.
Organisations committed to attracting and retaining top talent and building high performing teams and efficient organisations know that the interactions between people are at the core of performance.
The digitisation and acceleration of remote work and increased reliance on knowledge and information workers has increased pressure on organsiations to better understand their people and highlighted the need for more objective and scalable tools to achieve this. New engagement patterns are emerging and traditional sentiment analysis tools which only provide point in time measures or limited data points are being stretched beyond their usefulness.
The use of artificial intelligence and natural language processing to uncover previously hidden insights into team sentiment and stakeholder engagement patterns is becoming mainstream in high performing businesses.
ProjectAI has hands-on experience with a range of proprietary and off-the-shelf tools and technologies – as well as a practical approach to implementation and the necessary change management – to enhance your understanding of the people at the heart of your organisation and help them perform at their best.
