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.
