We’re delighted to be able to sponsor the latest Project:Hack from the team behind the fast growing Project Data Analytics Meetup.
If you’re not already familiar with the group that has been taking London by storm during 2018 with brilliant presentation sessions, you can check out what you’ve missed and what’s coming up next [over on their Meetup page]. We love communities of people passionate about their subject getting together – sharing and learning – after all PMO Flashmob has been doing it for a while.
This group are no different and at the end of February you can join them for the weekend to really learn more about project data analytics.
Here’s what it is all about:
Data science will transform how projects are delivered, saving billions for society, improving certainty in outcomes and changing the face of the project management profession forever. Project:Hack aims to:
- Explore methods and tools to transform how insights and value can be extracted from project data. Ranging from risk and schedule data through to on site presence of personnel.
- Enable delivery professionals to understand the predisposition of projects to specific challenges, to predict them arising and take action to avoid the avoidable.
- Ignite the professional imagination on what can be achieved and shape the future of project delivery.
Not sure if you have the experience?
No worries, the only pre-reqs for this event is ideas and enthusiasm. Not everyone needs to be a data scientist or a whizz on the tools. Your project management and PMO experience are just as important when it comes to an event like this.
The weekend starts:
The day starts by introducing the challenges and the data sets. You’ll then have the opportunity to pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members, or join a team whose idea you want to work on. You’ll then spend two days developing the concepts, interrogating the data, building proof of concepts and delivering a solid pitch to support it.
There will be on-ground support. Data scientists, PowerBI experts and subject matter experts will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch.
It’s a brilliant way to learn; meet others and really get into the whole data analytics thing at the deep end. Be brave, have a go.
