    • PROJECT DATA ANALYTICS COMMUNITY

      FOUNDED BY PROJECTING SUCCESS

      We have a bold vision and need your help. Imagine a world where we are able to collect, map and analyse the data that is acquired in the course of project delivery and use the insights from this data to deliver future projects more efficiently. A world where we reduce the probability of an adverse event that could de-rail the project that costs lives, sinks the company and creates untold reputation damage. Even better if we can get to a position where we are able to avoid the avoidable.

      It sounds easy doesn't it? But it's certainly not an easy path to follow. The lack of organisational imperative, volume of data, data quality and commitment to change makes this a tough vision to deliver.

      But by working together, sharing good practice, illustrating the art of the possible, pooling data and upskilling project delivery professionals, the vision becomes achievable. This is what our community is about.

      The Power of Data Persuasion: Optimising your Data-driven Business Case

      28 April 2021, 05:30 PM    07:00 PM
      To attend the event please go to: https://bit.ly/2PmjYsy When extracting insights from project data, a symptom of not understanding the problem statement, is that we often get overwhelmed and dive in without any substantial planning. We end up with several shallow takes on what our data might suggests, but we lack the depth to support and really drive our business case. This talk will showcase the importance of meticulously planning your approach to optimise your implementation of d

      Will Project Data Analytics Reinvent Risk Management?

      12 May 2021, 05:30 PM    07:00 PM
      To sign up to the event please go to our meetup page here: https://bit.ly/32hk47O   Risk management has existed for decades. But how many times do we go back and analyse how many times we got it right? How good were we at managing risk? We leave a forensic data plume that evaporates, yet it contains a huge amount of insight. Rather than relying on expert judgement, can we use risk to augment our instinct and counter inbuilt bias? What will the impact of this be on traditional proj

    • Why we need a Project Data Analytics Task Force

      In 2017 we met with people from the NHS and Network Rail to discuss the challenge of learning from experience and how advanced data analytics holds the key. I then developed a paper with Dr Stephen Duffield that summarised our research into 20,000 lessons lesson; we concluded that the process just doesn’t work. We take the complexity of a project and boil the experience down into a few trite paragraphs that are often statements of the obvious. Even today, a recent paper from Grant Mills et al hi

      Who has control of the data?

      Effective project data analytics requires data; lots of data. There is a split across industry into how this challenge is tackled, divided into various camps. I’ve summarised them into 5 areas but I recognise that it is difficult to capture all the nuances within such a short blog.    1. Closed systems. This is where a few companies are heading, creating their own vaults of data to shape their own models and analysis. We are seeing these starting to proliferate, from waste to project perfor
