Back to Basics: Critical Project Performance Fundamentals for the Road Ahead
Artificial Intelligence. Machine Learning. Predictive Analytics. They’re great and represent a huge step forward. But can you go zooming on this high-speed rail when you haven’t yet laid the tracks? We discuss the pillars of information you and your organization need in place to enable proactive, data-driven decision making that dramatically improves project performance.
Technology & Projects in Chaotic Times: A Conversation with Burns & McDonnell

Project Data Integration: The Future’s Great Enabler
We’ve heard it before: Silos of information. Manual processes. Inefficiency. Errors. Lack of control. But when critical information comes together, it unlocks the potential we seek – from data-centric progress measurement to cost predictability to regular and systemic achievement of financial and strategic goals. In this session, we highlight the evolution of data integration, where we’re headed and how to build autonomy into your systems.

|9:25am||The Project Performance Mandate: Getting Serious about Disruption
The status quo is dangerous for projects. The landscape in most organizations is littered with point solutions, homegrown solutions and redundant solutions. While projects are the engines of growth for so many businesses – despite increasing size, volume, complexity and scrutiny – so much of project performance management relies on spreadsheets. And the failures continue.
Decades ago, organizations rallied around finance’s need for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Yet no similar mandate has galvanized for a strategic, full lifecycle standard for projects. How do we prove the need and the business case? What’s the real value? Join us as we dismantle the status quo and identify the strategic objectives for projects that will carry your organization through the next normal.
