Automation is all around us. From voice commands to Google Home, Amazon’s Alexa, and other smart speaker devices to automating utility bill payments, bank deposits, and international wire transfers, almost everywhere we turn, the power of automation is fully present. The more manual tasks we give out to machines, the more time and energy humans can spend on some of the most difficult tasks and projects, such as coming up with new ideas.
Since automation has weaved its way into almost every industry and aspect of our daily work, it stands to reason that project managers are also looking for a way to automate their processes and streamline their strategies to make projects run at a much faster and more efficient pace.
