    RSVP here - Be an Agent for Change: Project Data Analytics for Beginners | Meetup Learn how you can start your journey into project data analytics with this free one-hour session! Come and learn the basics to give yourself a head start in the ever-changing world of data-driven project delivery. This session is built for those who are interested in data and how it can be leveraged to support their projects but are yet to take that first step into future of project delivery. We will introduce you to data analytics and show you how it can be used to improve project performance. Imagine being able to automate tedious tasks and unlock higher-value activity and step towards predicting the outcome of projects instead of being reactive. In a world where many roles will look radically different in the next few years, it's important for project professionals from all sectors to be able to adapt. As new technologies emerge and tools change regularly – you'll need an edge! Here are a few ways data skills can help you within your sector. Whether it be construction or retail this session can support you on the following: • Sense team and product supplier performance; forensically examine individual team performance, cohesion, collaboration, and its impact on project goals. • Ability to scenario plan future product launches and optimise project navigation. • Interrogate and visualise data from previous projects to inform and improve future strategy and discover new insights. Join James Smith PhD, CTO and lead delivery tutor of the Project Data Academy at Projecting Success, as he walks you through all of this step by step. Data analytics is the future, this report provides great insight into various sectors’ approaches to project data analytics - https://projectingsuccess.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Community-Research-Report-Q2-2021.pdf

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

    Register Here - The Project Data Analytics Starter Kit: Getting to Grips with Data in 2022 | Meetup Change is coming, get ready for it. James Smith Ph.D. will be walking you through all the components of project data analytics, through the lens of a project delivery professional. He will be walking you through all the components of project data analytics, through the lens of a project delivery professional in one hour. 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!

    RSVP Here - The Project Data Analytics Task Force Meetup | Meetup Following the launch of the Project Data Analytics Task Force last September, we have seen excellent engagement from project and data professionals from various sectors looking to get involved. The workstreams have been working tirelessly to explore and develop opportunities to accelerate the vision and be an engine for change. Join us on the 23rd November to get a glimpse of how the teams have been delivering this change, with an update of their progress, what they are currently working on and what they have in development for 2022. This will cover Solutions Development, Data Access, Data Quality, Research, Skills and Engagement. Hear from the WorkStream Leads which include: Engagement: Prof Tim Broyd, Director, UCL (Co-Chair), Andy Murray, Exec Director, MPA Solutions Development: Alex Robertson, Digital Deployment Lead-Projects, Petrofac Data Access: Grant Findlay, Director of Strategy & Innovation, Sir Robert McAlpine, Gareth Parkes, Head of Data, Sir Robert McAlpine Data Quality: Martin Paver, CEO, Projecting Success (Co-Chair) Skills: Sue Simmonite, Global Project Management & Control Director, BAE Systems Oliver Cowey, Corporate Project Controls Manager, BAE Systems Research: Jo Jolly, Deputy Director, Environment Agency Ronald Dyer, Programme Director of TUoS EMBA, University of Sheffield Breda Ryan, Director of Programme Controls Function Major Projects, Jacobs The Challenge Project management creates between £150-170bn of economic value annually in the UK. Yet, the effectiveness and efficiency of productivity remains stubbornly low. PMI’s Pulse of the Profession studies frequently demonstrate the high cost of low performance, as projects fail to meet original goals or business intent, finish late and over budget, experience scope creep or are deemed to be outright failures. The analysis by the University of Oxford’s Prof. Bent Flyvbjerg and Dr. Alex Budzier on ~12,000 global major projects concluded that the probability of a project being delivered on budget, on time and delivering the benefits defined in the business case is only 0.5% According to recent RICS reports, 95% of project data is used once only, and never used again. And yet, by leveraging the rich seam of project delivery data that exists across the profession, we have an opportunity to make a step-change in project management - delivering more projects for less, with a significantly increased return on investment and a high degree of confidence. The Project Data Analytics Task Force exists to facilitate a Project Delivery Transformation. However, the vision will only become a reality if we work collegiately. It is an opportunity for everyone, at every level to play their part

    The PROJECT:HACK11 Awards Evening will be streamed at the beginning of this event. Awards Evening - 18:00 - 18:30 Data Driven Delivery in Government - Where next? - 18:45 - 8:00 Government departments are beginning to understand the huge potential of data analytics within project delivery. From releasing capacity to enable people to perform higher value added roles through to predicting variance. But what does this mean for the government and its supply chain? Within this panel session, we will invite members of the cross-government group for project data analytics to discuss their vision for data driven project delivery, some of the obstacles and how they envisage it evolving. We'll also try and dig a little deeper to differentiate hype from reality. We'll also explore what this means for project professionals within government and also for everyone engaged in project delivery roles across the supply chain. You'll get an opportunity to ask questions and explore how to position yourself for what will be an inevitable future.
