Event description

Description

Welcome to Project:Hack5 - our 5th Project Data Analytics Hackathon!

Delivering innovative solutions around project delivery

Would you like to help to shape how projects are delivered in the future? You'll have an opportunity to work with others who share this vision and passion. You'll also get the opportunity to influence some major players in industry. We are working on datasets and hope to announce more details in the coming weeks.

Data science will transform how projects are delivered, saving billions for society, improving certainty in outcomes and changing the face of the project management profession forever. Project:Hack aims to:

  • Explore methods and tools to transform how insights and value can be extracted from project data. Ranging from risk and schedule data through to on site presence of personnel.

  • Enable delivery professionals to understand the predisposition of projects to specific challenges, to predict them arising and take action to avoid the avoidable.

  • Ignite the professional imagination on what can be achieved and shape the future of project delivery.

Themes & Challenges

The brief is to deliver innovative solutions around project delivery themes. These will be announced nearer the time, but in the meantime check out the output from our previous hackathons. To give you a flavour take a look at our masterclasses, pitch videos and presentation slides and blogs. Plus we offer £1,000 worth of prizes to really get your competitive juices flowing!

Fees

We will be charging a nominal fee of £25 a ticket. All of the money raised will go to Cancer Research, less eventbrite fees and VAT.

Let’s get started!

We'll start the day by introducing the challenges and the data sets. You'll then have the opportunity to pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members, or join a team whose idea you want to work on. You'll then spend two days developing the concepts, interrogating the data, building proof of concepts and delivering a solid pitch to support it. Finally, you'll get the opportunity to present to industry experts who will judge your proposal. Not only will you have the kudos associated with shaping the future of project management, but we will be awarding prizes too.

Happy to support you!

There will be on-ground support. Data scientists, PowerBI experts and subject matter experts will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch.

It promises to be a great couple of days with food, drinks, ideas and bucket loads of fun. The only requirement is to come with a lot of bright ideas and enthusiasm!

Space is limited, so please secure your place here as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Sponsors

Thank you to our generous sponsors without whom Project:Hack5 would not be possible! We have a number of sponsors, including some new ones who will be announced over the coming weeks. Watch this space!
