Sustainability is one of the most important challenges of our time. How can prosperity be developed without compromising the life of future generations?

As companies are integrating sustainability in their products, services and business processes, the concept of sustainability has more recently also been linked to project management. From the emerging sustainability school of project management, it shows that consideration of sustainability changes all aspects of project management and that it requires a mind shift of project and programme managers.

As PMOs set the standard for project management in an organisation, they play a pivotal role in the implementation of ‘sustainable’ project management in an organisation and the transition towards sustainability.

Gilbert Silvius, the author of several books and dozens of papers on the topic of sustainable project management, will take the participants through this role of the PMO. What questions should a PMO ask itself if it aims to help the organisation in realising its sustainability ambitions?

Gilbert Silvius presented at FuturePMO 2019 which is a 1 day PMO conference hosted by Wellingtone. www.FuturePMO.com

Exploring factors that stimulate project managers to consider sustainability • Intrinsically motivated PMs Are stimulated to address sustainability because they care about nature, the planet and the future and because they feel that caring for sustainability is something they should do. The characteristics of the project, or the opinion of others, do not play a large role.

Editor's Notes

  • We are now going to do a walkthrough of the PRiSM Methodology from a Workflow Perspective before diving in a little deeper.

    PRiSM Short for (Projects integrating Sustainable Methods)

    PRiSM™ (Projects integrating Sustainable Methods) is the sustainability based project delivery method which incorporates tangible tools and methods to manage the balance between finite resources, social responsibility, and delivering “green” project outcomes.  It was developed for organizations to integrate project processes with sustainability initiatives to achieve business objectives while decreasing negative environmental impact.
     
    PRiSM is a structured project management methodology that highlights areas of sustainability and integrates them into the traditional core project phases which, when understood and effectively addressed, can reduce negative environmental impacts in all types of projects while maximizing opportunities to manage sustainability and finite resources.   PRiSM is cut from the same cloth as the globally accepted standards for professional project management.  These standards are the “books of knowledge” as they are known to project managers.  PRiSM incorporates a framework of activities derived from ISO 21500, 14001, 26000, 50001 and 9001, focuses on specific areas and incorporates best practices to practically answer the question:   "How do I apply sustainability in to my projects?”
