    Project 13 is an industry initiative led by the Infrastructure Client Group (set up by the Institution of Civil Engineers) to establish a better business model for infrastructure delivery, improving productivity, performance and mitigating the skills risk. Digital Transformation is a critical enabler to unlock the value of infrastructure and provide more cost-effective ways to deliver customer outcomes. This includes the digital delivery of new assets and their operation and maintenance. These changes are underpinned by having better information that enables better decisions, faster. As part of Project 13, Mott MacDonald are sponsoring a programme of work on behalf of the ICG to benchmark the infrastructure industry's readiness for digital transformation. We have been working with leading infrastructure owners since late-2017, where membership includes Heathrow Airport, Thames Tideway, Network Rail, the Environment Agency and Sellafield. This session will introduce the Infrastructure Readiness Level (IRL) model, a bespoke tool that has been specifically developed to establish each organisation's readiness for digital transformation. The tool serves many purposes. It informs an organisation specific and industry-wide picture that enables cross-sector benchmarking and pinpoints common themes, strengths and weaknesses. It has also helps identify and celebrate leading best practice, informs the future direction each organisation wishes to take in the digital space and forges new collaborative relationships between multiple teams who face common challenges. Gain an insight into the key findings of the work completed to-date through extensive engagement, and pinpoint the specific findings that are most relevant to you and your business. Through the use of the latest data analytics techniques deployed live during the session, help pinpoint the key considerations and what they mean for future investment decisions. Debate with your peers, and also make that connection in taking the opportunity to get your infrastructure organisation enrolled today.
