Project ring of confidence - Data driven governance and assurance

Conference sponsored by The Oakland Group


Conference details


The ability to make fast, high quality decisions is essential in today’s fast-moving and volatile world. Projects, programmes and portfolios often become non-aligned with strategic objectives, disconnected from BAU, battling for resources that are limited, and struggling to deliver against a strategy that changes and is not well understood - often due to slow or poor decision making.

We need good quality, reliable data, delivered fast and that we can trust to enable good governance and reliable assurance, giving us confidence in achieving outcomes successfully. So how do we get that reliable source data and how best do we then use it within governance and assurance forums to radically increase the occurrence of successful project and programme outcomes?

Too often the data we collect is isolated in silos and not shared, leading to multiple versions of the 'truth'. Surely that can't be right? But how do we ensure that the right data gets to the right people at the right time to enable effective decision making? And how will artificial intelligence emerge to help, and how will we build confidence in that and machine learning?

This conference attempts to answer these and other questions so we can start to collect and use the right data for better decisions.
