[Almost] Everything you need to know to prepare
for a transformational AI/data driven project delivery future.

Seminar Topic:
Advanced data analytics is beginning to transform large swathes of society and has the potential to transform project management forever. This workshop will attempt to separate the hype from the reality and explore the impact that data science will have on project delivery. We will delve into what advanced data analytics is all about, what is currently happening and how it could impact your organisation, your role and your career. We’ll explore the methods and tools, including the barriers to successful implementation. Its not something that can be bolted on; it needs a fundamental change in approach, capturing the exhaust from project delivery and using this to shape future decision making. Martin set up the London Project Data Analytics meetup in Dec 2017 and it now has ~1300 members. He also established the first Project: Hack. He has published 3 articles on the subject in the APM Project magazine. He is helping to shape thinking and is on a mission to help the P3M profession to react positively and proactively to the opportunity (and threat) ahead of us.

What you will learn:
 become aware of the progress in the areas of decision making and cognitive skills, data science and AI as well as new processes and standards that were recently published.
 learn how to go “beyond brainstorming” and apply two step techniques to solving problems, leading group efforts and identifying risks: FFA: Force Field Analysis and CAA: Constraints and Assumption analysis.
 be introduced to PVaR ™: Project Value at Risk – a new data based approach and indicator to connect project planning to business outcomes.
 learn how to integrate data, decision making skills and existing processes into your own project management “dashboard”.
