Analyze, optimize, etc

According to Tom Friedman, author of "The World is Flat, "we’re in the middle of a change in the “climate” of technology."

And .... We’re moving into a world where machines and software can  
  • analyze (see patterns that were always hidden before);  
  • optimize (tell a plane which altitude to fly each mile to get the best fuel efficiency); 
  • prophesize (tell you when your elevator will break and fix it before it does);  
  • customize (tailor any product or service for you alone) and  
  • digitize and automate just about any job.
This is transforming every industry.

Could it happen to the PM job jar? Perhaps.

Certainly the challenge is to maintain value-add skills and knowledge that are not rules-based. The more your job has elements of randomness, the safer you are

Random is your friend!
