We noticed people faced a challenge understanding and deciding between agile and traditional/waterfall methodologies on managing projects. Therefore, we created a game to simulate the lived experience of making this decision: The Project Win Game ™. After creating and testing it throughout 2020-2021 we have now a very nice prototype of the game. We are… Continue reading The Project Win Game™ — Simulating Project Management Decision-Making
“Are artificial intelligence and machine learning the same thing?” is one of the most popular search request on Google. So I created this egg as an overview to understand it myself. The goal of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is to create an intelligent computing system to solve complex problems by learning from data. AI does not… Continue reading Are Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning the same thing?
People impacted by algorithms developed in artificial intelligence (AI) and big data projects want fairness, meaning moral or “just” treatment from algorithmic decision-making. However, fairness or the perception of fairness has several subjective components out of the scope of any development project, including pre-established attitudes and emotional reactions to algorithmic outcomes. Moreover, end-users understand, perceive,… Continue reading Connecting Project Teams to Data Driven Decision-Making and Ethical Artificial Intelligence
The algorithms implemented through artificial intelligence (AI) and big data projects are used in life-and-death situations. While research exists to address varying aspects of moral decision-making with algorithms, the definition of project success is not readily available. Nevertheless, researchers place the burden of responsibility for ethical decisions from AI systems on the system developers. Using… Continue reading Best Paper Award at FedCSIS 2021: ‘Moral Decision-Making with Algorithms: Artificial Intelligence Project Success Factors’ by Gloria Miller
We think a lot about people on projects. Some time ago, we wrote about how the agile coach deals with the different types of team members observing and determining the right level of support and guidance to give. Then, we identified several team member personalities and behaviors that have a positive and negative impact on the… Continue reading About Project Manager Profiles
This month, I attended the European Group on Organizational Studies (EGOS) conference. There were several thought-provoking sessions in the sub-theme on new actors, responsibilities and forms of organizing in the age of digital transformations. In our breakout on accountability, Hedwik Dissenha Giesel presented ideas on using blockchain for business sustainability. Gozal Ahmadova presented research on… Continue reading Thoughts on the #EGOS2021 Conference
What are the gaps in accountability between algorithm projects and the society impacted by algorithms? Gloria Miller will be presenting The Deficits in Stakeholder Accountability for Artificial Intelligence Projects at the European Group for Organizational Studies (EGOS ) on Thursday, July 08, 16:00 to 18:00. This study uses a stakeholder accountability model and network analysis to… Continue reading The Deficits in Stakeholder Accountability for Artificial Intelligence Projects – A presentation by Gloria Miller at the European Group for Organizational Studies
Gloria J. Miller will be presenting ‘A Stakeholder Accountability Model for Artificial Intelligence Projects’ at the European Academy of Management (EURAM) Conference in the section PROJECTS & SOCIETY — T10_03 – Projects & Society & the Dark Side of Projects on Thursday, June 17th 2021 at 15:45 CEST. Have a look at the explainer video… Continue reading A Stakeholder Accountability Model for Artificial Intelligence Projects – by Gloria Miller – EURAM Conference 2021
Enabling Teams and Project Managers Most projects are complicated, and the completely distributed working driven by the pandemic didn’t make project work easier. Nevertheless, project sponsors and program offices still need to ensure projects deliver their expected benefits. This Project Management Service is targeted at project sponsors and program managers that have an urgent project… Continue reading Project Management Service
In the last few years, the agile wave has taken hold in Germany. If you work within the information technology sector or for one of the big software houses, then “agile” has been practiced by your organization for months or years. Recently, as the predominant agile methodology, Scrum is being used and rolled out to… Continue reading Next Workshop: Saturday, 8th May 2021 — What are The Differences Between Agile and Non-Agile Projects?
