The project management profession is continuously evolving, and increasingly leveraging business and technology innovations.

Creating value out of data is one of the highest priorities in business across all industries and services in the private and public sectors alike.

What about the effective use of data in project, programme and portfolio management? How can we measure results and benefits, and spot patterns and outliers using proven techniques and best practice with modern tools? How do you make the best use of modern data analytics tools to visualise outcomes and benefits across projects, programmes and portfolios?

  • gain insight into industry best practices and,
  • boost value for project management practitioners and their organisations.

The session covered:
