Welcome to the Project Data Analytics meetup. We created this meet up to share best practice on leveraging data within a project, programme and portfolio environment. We all know that data has the potential to transform how projects, programmes and portfolios are delivered, but practical implementation constraints often prevent the full value from being realised.
This meetup will explore some of the challenges at the intersection of data analysis and project, programme and portfolio management and discuss how practitioners are working to resolve them, underpinned by real world examples.

The best metric for software work
Featuring Colin Hammond
In this talk Colin Hammond raises the importance of using the best foundation metric on software endeavours. He explains why size is the most important aspect to measure and why the ISO standard, COSMIC Function Points is the best metric to use. Using this as the base, other metrics for cost,...data project-data
How do we use technology to augment human judgement in projects?
Featuring Dave Snowden
Can complexity inform the way we do project management? How do we manage risk at heightened levels of complexity? Can we use weak signal detection techniques to give early warning of possible failure or overrun? At this meet up, Dave will be taking work from counter terrorism (his DARPA and other...data analytics
