chapter in Data Analytics in Project Management, recently
published by CRC Press, professors Dr. J. Davidson Frame and Dr. Yanping Chen of
the University of
Management and Technology describe how advances in the ability of
organizations to instantly process and analyze unthinkably large data sets is
having an impact on advancing the practice of project management. The Chapter is
titled "Why Data Analytics in Project Management?" In reviewing trends in both
data analytics and project management, Frame and Chen argue that project-based

Frame and Chen point out that today, project
management practice is clearly moving forward with PM 2.0, which goes beyond
simply addressing the triple constraints of project time, budget and scope, and
highlights the need for agility, the incorporation of business performance in
project designs, establishing enterprise Project Management Offices to manage
the full portfolio of an organization's projects, and aligning project
objectives tightly with corporate strategic objectives.
graduate degrees at the master's and doctoral levels support the PM 2.0
outlook. They are geared toward incorporating a data analytics perspective in
managing projects. The programs are built on core foundational project
management courses that incorporate PM 2.0 perspectives and are supplemented by
additional courses in the areas of decision making, risk management, IT
management, organizational behavior, strategic management and data analytics.
After completing their graduate degree in project management, UMT students are
prepared to be project leaders who are well-grounded in a radically new outlook
on the effective practice of project management.
Another reason to become proficient in data science is that for three years in a row, LinkedIn has identified it as the most promising job today, with base salaries of $130,000.
