#510 Beyond Humans: Using Machine Learning to Calculate Contingency for Systemic Risks
**An encore of this session is available on Wednesday, 9 May, 10.30 (#607).

Systemic risks are seldom considered by project teams when risk assessments are done, yet systemic risks are very often the cause of spectacular project overruns. Systemic risks include factors such as speed of decision making, project team competence, project management methodologies, and the socioeconomic environment. This presentation shows how machine learning in the form of artificial neural networks can be used to predict the impact of systemic risks on a project.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) identify and classify the systemic risks that may impact your projects;
(2) use artificial neural networks to model systemic risks and predict their time and cost impacts to your projects.

#606 Half-Double Methodology: Creating Double the Impact in Half the Time
Click here for a Video Introduction from Michael Ehlers.

Despite developments in agile methodologies over the last 20 years, the potential for optimisation in projects is still significant. Current research shows that there are methodologies that can be used to reduce lead time and increase value creation of projects by 30% or more. Join this presentation to learn about the three core elements of the half-double methodology so that you can lead your projects to double the impact in half the time.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) summarise the half-double methodology and core elements of impact, flow, and leadership;
(2) explain how PMI’s project management tools can be integrated into the half-double methodology and applied to current projects.
