The essential partnership between digital and project management

The Holiday Inn, Cartwright Drive, Fareham, Hampshire, PO15 5RJ 

Data. There is a lot out there. Knowing how to handle and present data can be a powerful tool to supplement the future of Project Management.

However, it’s not without its challenges. For example: fragmented data ownership; limited processes; reactive culture; and the sheer abundance of data to name a few.

But how can data be insightful to projects, programmes and portfolios? How can we use data to create meaningful information and realise company objectives?

 This event will provide an understanding of the Workbank Application, APM’s IT & Technology Project of the Year 2017. A web-based single source of truth which records, plans and identifies project conflicts to reduce both operational and capital expenditure within an infrastructure environment.

 Utilising real world examples within the rail infrastructure environment, delegates can expect to gain an understanding of the approach used during the development of the software as well as the struggles of implementing within a steadfast culture.

This session will cover:

  • Agile methodology;
  • Understanding requirements;
  • Implementing the application;
  • Delivering benefits; and
  • Lessons learned.

The takeaway:

  • How to apply digital processes to benefit projects, programmes or portfolios;
  • Moving away from linear waterfall logic; and
  • Why an integrated programme office is key for success.

Jonathan Collins joined Arup as a project management consultant and has experience in delivering automotive, rail and data centres projects. Having honed his technical skills from an engineering background, he has the ability to bridge the skills gap between management and technical understanding.

 Jemima Bird is a project professional within Arup, currently leading their project management team for HS2 Phase 2b. Jemima led the integrated programme office during the Workbank Application initiation whilst being embedded within the client organisation.

 Andy Kervell was principal in the development of the Workbank Application. His exceptional knowledge and experience of spatial and asset information was key to the concept and development of the application.

 Lucy Anderson is a senior consultant in Arup’s digital insight team. She managed the development of the Wessex Application, championing the agile methodology. Lucy has experience in a vast array of multidisciplinary projects across a number of industries.
