It’s hard not to eye-roll when the business gurus tell us “Know our customer! Develop from the customer’s point of view!” Not that it’s wrong; it’s just that we all agree. That’s what we’re trying to do. Tell us how we can do it better. Enter workflow mapping. This is an under-utilized technique for identifying customer / user difficulties, especially in the context of on-the-job activities done by experts. The result of workflow mapping is a set of charts in which you can look at strategic goals and zoom in to an astounding level of detail – the tools and techniques used to execute each task. In each step, pain points are identified. That document can drive creative, customer-centered product development.

Our speaker (Dr. Gregory Richards) will present to you his latest research on Workforce Analytics applied to Project Management in Government.Managing the HR element in projects adds the complexity of continual “on-boarding” and “off-boarding” of project staff.

The session will examine application of “Big Data” techniques to the project HR environment. Recruitment: leverage historical data to create profiles of well-performing project resources. Managing performance: objectively identify the most efficient producers & identify ways of moving the entire team to the “efficient frontier.” Prediction: forecast likely attrition based on “nearest-neighbour” techniques.
