Register here:  The Project Data Analytics Starter Kit: Getting to Grips with Data in 2021 | Meetup
After popular demand, a new and improved Project Data Analytics event with James Smith, PhD is here!
He will be walking you through all the components of project data analytics, through the lens of a project delivery professional. Many existing roles will look radically different in a few years time; for some it will be a matter of adapt or become obsolete.
Project Data Analytics can be used to support project delivery through:
• Anticipate variance and future cast
• To scenario plan the future and optimise its navigation
• Manipulating probabilities and accepting that the future is not
predetermined
• Sense team and supplier performance; forensically examining
individual performance, cohesion, collaboration and its impact on
project goals.
• Interrogate the connectivity between disparate elements of a
project and extract insights.
• Automate repetitive and burdensome roles, releasing capacity for
higher value activity.
• Interrogate and visualise data and discover new insights.
• Build and communicate data-driven business cases across various
stakeholders.
Start your Journey in Project Data Analytics with this talk. We will cover everything that we'll need in our armoury to adapt over the coming years. From Power BI to automation, data pipelines to Python. We will explain why we'll need it, what we can do with it and how to go about it all in a practical manner. What do you think?!
These capabilities are becoming mainstream and a key part of our future project delivery roles. Don’t get left behind, get on board now!

    

Register here: How The IPA are Harnessing the Power of Data to Support Major Projects | Meetup
The UK government delivers some of the most complex and innovative projects in the world. This requires a world class project delivery capability: Government needs to be rigorous and fearless in its evaluation of policy and projects. To this end they have commissioned IPA to develop the systems, capability and capacity necessary to achieve that objective.
The Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) is the government’s centre of expertise for infrastructure and major projects, supporting the successful delivery of all types of major projects.
This talk is led by Mark Hunter the Deputy Director for Performance, Benchmarking & Data at IPA. Mark will take us through the role data plays in IPA's covering the unique remit and breadth of data and analysis work at play.
He will underline initiatives and involvement which help progress the vision of project data analytics, In addition to outlining the challenges of data collection and processing across Government.

    

Sign up here: Masterclass Project:Hack10 Hear from previous hack attendees on what to expect | Meetup
In the field of Project Data Analytics a lot of what is possible is unrecognised by the majority of the project community. We developed Project:Hack to show the art of the possible within a weekend. Our hackathons were created to provide a platform for professionals and students to get hands-on experience working with data on real business challenges.
Project:Hack10 is on the horizon and we're looking to optimise your experience by building your competitive appetite and preparing you for the upcoming event.
This talk will feature guest speakers from the top four winning teams at Project:Hack 9! They are from various organisations and sectors who will give insight into their past experiences of the event and how you can bring tangible benefits to your organisation.
The Talk:
- A run through of how challenges are developed in line with organisations and sponsors
- What to expect at your first Project:Hack and how to tackle it
- How to get started with Project:Hack10
- Case Studies of how challenges were tackled within teams over two days, which include:
1st place went to team 1a, a challenge set by Costain to extract construction pricing estimate data from an unstructured data source and transform this into a structured dataset, and secondly to create a visualised search tool that can be used to access the data in a quick and efficient manner.
2nd place went to challenge 10, developed by Projecting Success.
A challenge that involves using the power of a state-of-the-art natural language model (GPT-3) to automatically create tailored messages to different stakeholder groups on a construction project. This involved creating personalised messages to the various stakeholders using the data provided as prompts to GPT-3.
3rd Place went to Challenge 11a – A challenge that built on the work of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with the University of Nottingham. The challenge intended to improve cost forecasting and/modelling to make it an automated and efficient way to reduce cost. The challenge was to create a machine learning prediction model and further develop our dashboard to allow automatic access to the predictions.
4th place went to challenge 1b - This challenge was about making it easier to work with unstructured data to search and find information. The challenge required hackers to take a pdf filled with data and tables and pull that all into a completely new structure.
The Speakers:
Kuldip Khella, Senior Estimator, Costain
Shailendar Palle, Senior Estimator, Costain
Jozef Quinn, Business Intelligence Analyst, Costain
Jon Barritt, Lead Principal Temporary Works Enigineer, Costain
Hamish Bryant, Reporting Analyst, Costain
Christine Curtis, Principal Process Engineer, Costain
Torben Schmidt-Hansen, Assistant Cost Intelligence Consultant, Mott MacDonald
James Fleming, Data Analyst, Projecting Success
Jack Reynolds, Data Analyst, Mace
Russell Willis, Data Liberator, Mace
Vipul Kumar, Geotechnical Engineer, Mott MacDonald and PhD student at University of Cambridge

    RSVP HERE - https://bit.ly/3ma2pKf Project data is different from ordinary data; there is more qualitative data and fewer quantitative measures. Timelines are really important and there are many more dates; e.g. project and task start, and completion, milestone dates. This creates challenges in analysing the data. For example we often need to calculate what happens between two dates rather than on a date. What we measure is also different, capacity, availability and demand, as well as the t
