Introducing the concept of Green Project Management

  • I was with my girlfriend one night. I have been taking Semenax, and as we were having sex, I lasted longer. When the moment came for me to orgasm, it was the greatest feeling I've ever felt, it lasted longer, and a lot more came out. ◆◆◆ https://bit.ly/2No6XLF

  11. 11. InitiationPhase Initiation phase considerations:  Incorporate environmental cost/benefit in business cases and proposals  Add 'effect on environment' as an element in all project charters  Incorporate applicable corporate Green program goals into project's goals  Consider defining/aligning green project objectives and measures that will drive the behaviors, to those goals  Bring in the corporate Environmental Department as a project stake holder  Obtain e-sign offs unless required for legal purposes

  19. 19. Monitoring & Control Phase  Collect and openly share project metrics on environmental stewardship and sustainability  Identify 'green' proposals as part of solution alternatives when managing Change.  Hold Quarterly ‘Green’ review meetings to assess progress against Green objectives/metrics and for fostering innovative ideas  Make certain project is completed on time and budget so that more resources are not used than planned

  21. 21. Green Anywhere
  22. 22. Green Anywhere  Unfortunately, there is neither a simple answer nor a single solution to the 'green PM movement.'  Project Managers have a direct effect on their organizations’ future capabilities and can initiate the shift in organizational thinking that is required.
  23. 23. Green Anywhere  All projects affect the environment in some way, and a project manager can help by being an effective change agent to mitigate adverse environmental effects.  Every project will have to balance the environmental considerations with other project objectives.
  24. 24. Green Anywhere  If the impact to the environment is constantly in the forefront, then there is an increased awareness among the decision makers and project teams.  Outcomes could be different when the influence of project(s) on the environment is taken into account and over time the cumulative effect will result in a positive impact when made by project managers each day, across the globe.
