Will Project Data Analytics Reinvent Risk Management?
Risk management has existed for decades. But how many times do we go back and analyse how many times we got it right? How good were we at managing risk? We leave a forensic data plume that evaporates, yet it contains a huge amount of insight. Rather than relying on expert judgement, can we use risk to augment our instinct and counter inbuilt bias? What will the impact of this be on traditional project based risk management roles?
Within this session Sue Kershaw, President of the APM, will be chairing a panel discussion on the how advanced data analytics will impact the role of risk management within the project delivery profession. Is this a bump in the journey or will we need to totally reinvent the discipline? Hear from some of the experts in their field including:
Andy Murray, Director of the Major Projects Association
Richard Bendall-Jones, Risk and Value Manager, Network Rail
Roy Millard, Founder and Deputy Chair, APM Assurance. Owner of P3 Risk and Assurance
Martin Paver, CEO of Projecting Success and founder of the Project Data Analytics Community
Dev Amratia, CEO of NPlan
What does this mean for all of us in the project profession and what do we need to do to prepare for this future?
Some suggested topics include:
How are the panel approaching this area generally?
How will the technical companies involved adapt to the shift towards data driven risk management?
How should people prepare for this future?
How do we get enough data to drive high-end analytics?
Will this shine a light on personal performance; how well companies manage risk?
