Identifying & Tracking the Right Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to Understand Project & Schedule Health

Every project is different, and knowing which metrics to track,  how to track them and how to utilize that information to mitigate risks can be a little overwhelming. To get some clarity on how to get better analytics to fully understand project health, this workshop will focus on:

  • Analyzing past schedules and projects to establish key indicators for success, as well as early risk warning signs
  • Operationalizing the factors into KPIs to track more consistently
  • Establishing a standardized procedure to carefully track these KPIs across all projects
  • Exploring how applications of these metrics have helped project teams identify potential issues on projects and take proactive steps ahead of time to mitigate risk

Workshop C: 3.30-5.30pm

Harnessing Data Collected From a Scheduling System to Mitigate Future Supply Chain Risks

With the supply chain becoming more and more disrupted and showing no signs of changing soon, it’s vital that organizations take control now and utilize the latest technology to track supply chain data and collaborate with suppliers to create more accurate schedules in the future. This session will deep dive into:

  • Devising a process to track supply chain data and adjust project schedules accordingly to build in the right contingency and create more realistic expectations for all project stakeholders
  • Working with suppliers and trade contractors to integrate additional
    data and insights into your data to help get ahead of potential issues and discuss risk mitigation strategies
  • Benchmarking software on the market that can enable the capture and
    integration of this data and how this can integrate into your scheduling workflows
