Panel discussion: getting started with data - a project professional's guide

In a world where use of data is becoming increasingly crucial to the successful delivery of a project, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. In this panel discussion, project practitioners and academics from APM’s Data Advisory Group will share their knowledge of how data relates to project success, how it is being - and should be - applied to projects to get better results and what you, as a project professional, need to know about it. This session is ideal for anyone who’s beginning their journey into the world of data and wants to broaden their knowledge about how it can help you as a project professional deliver better projects.
