Community

We founded the Project Data Analytics community in 2017. It is now the largest community of project delivery and data science professionals in the UK and is expanding all the time. Existing purely for the benefit of its members, it seeks to push the boundaries of project delivery into a whole new realm.

We have a bold vision – imagine a world where we are able to collect, map and analyse the data that is acquired in the course of project delivery and use the insights from this data to deliver future projects more efficiently. A world where we reduce the probability of an adverse event that could de-rail the project that costs lives, sinks the company or creates untold reputation damage. Even better if we can get to a position where we are able to avoid the avoidable.

It sounds easy doesn’t it? But its certainly not an easy path to follow. The lack of organisational imperative, volume of data, data quality and commitment to change makes this a tough vision to deliver.

But by working together, by sharing good practice, illustrating the art of the possible, pooling data and up-skilling project delivery professionals the vision becomes a realistic one. This is what our community is about.

PROJECT:HACK

Project:Hack brings together project managers and data analysts to solve real world data challenges set by industry, developing solutions to enhance project delivery. Our hackathons take place over a weekend, 3 times a year at Microsoft Reactor in London.  These are for project managers, data analysts and industry professionals to join together for a fun and engaging weekend of real-world challenges, masterclasses and networking. Together they aim to push boundaries and develop innovative solutions to enhance project delivery outcomes.

Our sponsors bring exciting challenges to the hackathons along with experts in their field, providing mentorship and guidance. The challenges are pitched to suit a variety of competencies, so there’s something for everyone. We also put on Masterclasses on subjects such as Python, PowerBI and SQL which are free and open to all. To top it all off, there are over £1000 worth of prizes to be won and free food and beer!
