A significant portion of most of POs and SMs time was consumed in the laborious task of creating numerous PowerPoint presentations or Excel spreadsheets, which are crucial but manual and extremely time consuming.

I took the challenge to automate all the reports. There was a lot of resistance and pushbacks but had the support of 1 lead so carried on. I began by streamlining the Jira workflows across all nine projects. Got the team to Ingest the Jira data into our data warehouse. Used this data to get the BI team build fancy dashboards for all manual reports. However, a further obstacle arose regarding how executives would comprehend the detailed Jira task summaries. To overcome this, I employed Vertex AI's language summarizer (not as classy as ChatGPT but close), collaborating with the RPI team to fine-tune the machine learning models. With this solution in place, we now enjoy concise and meaningful updates summarized in a single line(where required), facilitating a clear understanding of the weekly, fortnightly, and monthly reports. All automated!

Automation is a mindset. I consistently drive the automation agenda within my team and value every small step towards achieving it.
