    Register here - Getting Started in Project Data Analytics, A Real World Experience | Meetup Project data analytics is starting to accelerate, but how are organisations implementing it. Is the answer to centralise the skills within a centre of excellence, to federate them across the business or a blended approach. Will we have dedicated teams of project analysts/data scientists or will it be embedded into everyone’s role. What types of skills do we need? Within this panel session each panel member will give a short summary of their approach to project data analytics within their business, then we will explore: • How do they layer the skills across the business, from superusers through to occasional users. • How do they govern roll out of capabilities, ensuring a degree of control whilst promoting innovation. • How are they tackling the issue of data quality, availability etc? How does a central vs federated team influence this? • How are you managing data engineering? Is this embedded in IT or have you broken it out? • What advice would you give to an organisation grappling with upskilling existing domain expertise vs employing 100% analysts? • Are organisations ready for a crack team of data science ninjas or are we lacking the data? “The Digital Construction and Innovation journey of VolkerWessels UK” We will be sharing our digital transformation journey and our Tomorrow Now programme with you and our vision to become a company which is powered by data and driven by people. We will reveal more about our digital strategy and how we have progressed on our digital roadmap. In addition, we will showcase how we have created our Power BI network and how we have encouraged the use of citizen development to drive a data-driven culture. We will also give you the opportunity to quiz us on how have approached information management, virtual construction and construction logistics.

    Register here - Data driven project controls in action. A new era is upon us | Meetup Data-driven project controls in action. A new era is upon us. One step further: A Digital Collaboration Hub The TRU Alliance has identified a need to shift the business towards the use of digital construction, near real-time reporting and improved collaboration through the support of digital control rooms. Following 16 days of railway blockade works to renew structures, the TRU West Alliance successfully handed back the railway line between Manchester and Stalybridge. The Digital Collaboration Hub played a major role in fostering and facilitating this collaboration and in providing real-time communication to the delivery team. Although it has now become the new standard for project controls reporting within the TRU Alliance, this new way of working has provided the business with the ability to make informed decisions in a timely and concise manner. In this 16-day period, the team delivered over 100 automated Power BI reports to our stakeholders, capturing real-time data using Power Apps. Although the single source of truth was available live 24x7 embedded in MS Teams, a status freeze (every 4 hours) was part of the project’s reporting requirements. Takeaways With the use of Power Platform, a readily available technology by Microsoft, you could… Automate your entire reporting cycle and tremendously reduce the amount of time in consolidating data and producing reports Prevent errors associated with manual data consolidation Provide real-time visibility into your projects’ status Quickly identify project performance problems at the desired granularity level Spend more time in data analysis and flagging project issues Jeancarlo Durán Maica, MBA, CCP™, PMP®, EVP™ is a subject expert on Power BI and Primavera P6. With over 12 years of experience, his in-depth knowledge in project controls best practices are widely validated with international certifications in the areas of project and cost management. With experience across rail, civils, tunnelling, mining and housing projects, Jeancarlo holds different professional certifications such as: CCP (Certified Cost Professional), PMP (Project Management Professional), EVP (Earned Value Professional) and Primavera P6 EPPM Implementation Specialist. He has been an active member of AACE International, founding the AACE Peru Section in 2013 and serving on the Board of Directors of AACE International 2017-2019 as Director-Region 10 (Latin America). Jeancarlo is currently working as a Digital Planning and Reporting Manager for BAM Nuttall on a multi-million pound rail project in the UK (Transpennine Route Upagrade), connecting Manchester to Leeds.

These skills align with some of the most important trends within a rapidly-changing construction industry and ensure that I (and by extension the company) can work at the genuine cutting edge of what is possible. In addition, I have also been able to work with like-minded individuals and develop a broad network of people across a range of organisations (both within construction and beyond) who are looking to share insights and ideas to deliver projects more efficiently and effectively.Speaker 2 -Kai Tyler, Project Support (Information Management) National HighwaysEmbarking on the Project Data Analytics quest has been a pivotal point in my career at National Highways. Having joined the PMO team straight out of University, I accepted ways of working which had been utilised for a long time simply because I didn’t know any different. Newly equipped with an in-demand skill set and eyes open to what is possible, I can now challenge and work to improve how we deliver our projects by leveraging data which we already have in abundance, but do not use to its full potential.Speaker 3 - Nick Stepanov, Project Manager Mott MacdonaldSpeaker 4 - Torben Schmidt-Hansen, Cost Intelligence Consultant, Mott Macdonald

  7. Register here: Why we Need to Rethink Complex Mega Projects | Meetup We routinely label expensive projects as complex projects but does this generalisation lead us to mismanage how they are delivered? On HS2, is the process of laying hundreds of mile of track complex? Should we be adapting our approach based upon the extent to which the project is subject to change, i.e. how emergent it is? But how do we know where we are? How can data help us along this journey and enable us to understand the current and emerging position? Data can probably help us with the elements of a project which are known and repetitive, but what about the parts of a projects that are in flux? Can we plan our way out of these? Can data help us by deploying probes to detect where we are and how the environment is evolving; can it help us with lead indicators? How should we be managing complexity and what role does data have to play? Dave Snowden is an internationally renowned guru on complexity and has kindly agreed to share his insights into a range of crunchy issues facing the project delivery profession. When he delivered his talk to our community in 2019 it was one of our most popular! It provided a perspective that many hadn’t considered before. We are delighted to welcome him back so we can dig a little deeper. Dave Snowden is CSO and Founder of Cognitive Edge and Director of the Cynefin Centre. He has pioneered a science based approach to organisations drawing on anthropology, neuroscience and complex adaptive systems theory. He is a popular and passionate keynote speaker on a range of subjects, and is well known for his pragmatic cynicism and iconoclastic style. He holds positions as extra-ordinary Professor at the Universities of Pretoria and Stellenbosch as well as visiting Professor at the University of Hull in The Centre for Systems Studies.

    https://bit.ly/2QyDti9 We asked you at our last meetup, "how big of an impact do you think project data analytics will have on your role within the next 3 years". 96% believed there would be at least a significant impact, with some believing in a complete evolution. With a growing demand for advanced data analytics across projects, its been a case of adapting or being left behind for both organisations and individuals. At this masterclass we have real case studies of organisations and individuals who have brought data analytics to the forefront of their work. Are you from a non-data background and looking into transitioning into data? or perhaps how you can use data to optimise your current role. Hear from speaker Jozef Quinn on how his journey with data ignited and how he made the transition from an mechanical engineer into a Business Reporting Analyst at Costain. For those with bold ambitions for data analytics, hear from Jon Kirby, Director at Ishango Ltd and Dan Maddocks Director at Buildata Ltd on how they have been able to establish successful data analytics consultancies operating within the project delivery space. Engage with our speakers and learn about what drove their ambition, the challenges they faced, their methods to overcoming these challenges and where they see the market currently and in the future. A short Q&A will be held at the end for you to ask questions and recieve advice from the presenters.

    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 data analytics. Rishi will provide a demonstration in identifying the use case, conceptually designing a data model, understanding the metrics and designing powerful visualisations. Speaker Bio: Rishi is a consultant in the Analytics Experience team at Avanade with a keen interest in Power BI Governance, effective data modeling, and self-serve architecture.
