Dark Data in Project Management – The Critical (Un)known Unknown
The most important asset for organizations today is data. With the exponentially growing amount of information, also the project management domain is expected to become a more analytics-driven practice that relies on the proper collection and processing of relevant project information. An estimated 80% of data that is collected today by organizations is usually unused as it is considered of no benefit for business operations. In the era of big data, such information, known as dark data, is becoming a problem as it means that there is hidden information that will not be accounted for in decision-making processes. This represents an increased risk for projects as it could lead to wrong project decisions.
The presentation will provide insights on the nature of dark data, the different types of dark data, how it impacts project management, and what organizations and project professionals can do to address this increasing risk.
