There are unprecedented opportunities at the intersection of AI, project management, and sustainability. Unfortunately, without proper execution, projects to implement AI come with complexities, costs and a carbon footprint that undermine sustainability goals. It is essential for project managers to learn to implement “green algorithms,” specialized AI constructs designed to both enhance operational efficiency and prioritize sustainability. A five-step framework of defining sustainability objectives, centralizing data, customizing algorithms, pilot testing, and full-scale implementation can guide project managers and leaders as they deploy green algorithms effectively.

Most projects are still managed with Microsoft Office tools, such as Excel and PowerPoint. Can you imagine running your business and operations with spreadsheets? Well, that reflects how little technology has evolved in project management.
