Only around 50% of projects are completed on time and slightly more are delivered within the original budget. This situation has hardly changed in nearly a decade. It is a challenge which is ideally suited to advanced data analytics methods, however whilst data analytics are gaining traction across the board, the project management profession is a relatively late adopter. We are on a mission to change this and shape a new future; a future that has the potential to save society hundreds of billions and transform how projects are managed.
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.
