The event is focussing on how we address major project delivery when the stability we have enjoyed for 20 years has vanished overnight.

How is industry coping?

How can Government make reliable cost and delivery assumptions?

Subject areas I am interested in.

Resilience. Organisational and human.

Project Skills for all. Disappear the project manager so everyone can do it.



How will data analytics cope with a variable future?

Benefits are realised through use not projects. Defend.

Sustainable practice. Degrowth and Circular Economy will only work if it's enforced. Discuss.

Are professional bodies helping us or helping themselves?

Also an opportunity to raise the profile of Earned Value Management (EVM). The ISO workgroup creating an Implementation Guide to EVM will be there coinciding with a working meeting in London.

Additionally with my BSi chair hat we will be introducing BS202001 Project Controls. The new specification standard which will describe a broader oversight horizon for inception of an idea through to final use. Not just the delivery of scope.

EVA is an annual event which presents a review and discussion of subjects related to the improvement of the processes and people involved in the delivery of project programmes and portfolios.

He is leading the development of BS202001 Project Controls in which MOD is a participant and working closely with PsACE community harmonising estimating practice in government and its supply chain. Also he represents BSi on ISO WG12 developing an Implementation guide to EVM.

The information is delivered by experts with experience mostly senior to very senior.

They will make professional connections.

BSi 202001 is scheduled for issue early 2023. The attendees will better understand its intended use.
