                          Workshop 05 March 2019

                          Presenter Short Biography

                          Martin Paver is a Registered Project Professional and Chartered Engineer. Martin has had a range of experience including leading a $billion project with a team of 220 and a multibillion PMO with a team of 50. He has a detailed grasp of project management and combines this with a broad understanding of recent developments in the field of data science.
                          In Dec 2017 he established the London Project Data Analytics meetup, which now has 1800 members. He also set up Project:Hack, a community based hackathon for driving insights out of project data using advanced methods. He is on a mission to ensure that the project management profession readies itself for a transformed future.

                          Leveraging our experience of project delivery; Understanding how projects are predisposed to variance and laying the foundations for machine learning.

                          Organizations typically struggle to learn lessons from one project to another. This workshop will explore a transformational approach to how experience is leveraged, focused upon use cases within the oil and gas sector.

                          • Conventional approaches to lessons learned.
                          • Understand the problems that these approaches are trying to solve and whether these approaches work in reality.
                          • Barriers to learning lessons.
                          • Underpinning research.
                          • Common themes and causes of failure.
                          • Moving beyond lessons learned to leveraging experience.
                          • Understanding the predisposition of work to variance.
                          • Principles of data analytics and machine learning.
                          • A vision for how we can transform how projects are delivered.

                          When Martin presented his approach to a branch event of the UK Association for Project Management members of the audience commented:

                          “One of the most thought provoking APM presentations that I have attended. Based on lots of analysis of real project data, the speaker has formulated many valuable theories on lessons learned (or not learned) from different projects. This led to several models of why issues arise; these offer immense potential and value to improving future project success”.

                          “Excellent presentation and exceptionally useful in understanding how data analysis can be more accurately used to understand projects with particular reference to scope, cost and schedule”

                          “Interesting topic delivered by an expert in the field. Some challenges posed to the conventional ways of working and a glimpse into what could be coming next”

                          “Martin’s approach to lessons learned is both revolutionary and highly disruptive to people who take a more traditional approach to the subject. The world of portfolios, programmes and projects needs more people like Martin to shake things up and make us think differently”
