Benefits for the course participant
After completing the course each participant will be able to:

  • Contribute to sustainability through your projects.
  • Deliver sustainable projects on time – or ahead of time.
  • Frame and structure sustainable projects.
  • Create structured data that can be used quickly and efficiently to adjust the project deliverable and the features of the deliverable. All in collaboration with the steering group, the client, the supplier, and others influencing the project’s value creation in the entire scope of the sustainability.
  • Create better results – and faster.
  • Conduct projects online.
  • Work in a way that makes job satisfaction and energy level come together month after month.
  • Ensure learning during the entirety of the project.
  • Create transparency in the project.
  • Facilitate good collaboration across organisations, divisions, and cultures.
  • Make sure that the project is under control.

Benefits for the company

  • Opportunity to make your projects sustainable.
  • Better chance of complying with the sustainability legislation in force.
  • Make visible the value of sustainability that your projects create by reporting to, e.g. the UN.
  • Transparency in how your company wishes to contribute to sustainability.
  • Attracting and retaining those employees, who find that sustainability is important.
  • Opportunity to reuse specifications from one project to another similar project. Here we have seen a reduction in time of up to 80% of the specification work.

  • Quicker project completion by less do-over work.
  • Value creation early in the planning phase. This provides the company with the flexibility to redeploy employees if priorities change.

Teaching method
The course is conducted by using blended learning. Before the course starts, we encourage the participants to watch around three hours of educational videos. They relate to the agile part of the project approach and take you from start to finish in the project.

This teaching method increases learning significantly compared to traditional course learning.

All classes can be done online, so it is up to you whether you wish to participate in person or online. We use top-of-the-line conference equipment to ensure our online participants an optimal experience. Texts are in English and the speaking is in Danish. Please notify us in case you would like to do the course in English.

UN Sustainability Goals

The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals are designed to help nations act more sustainably. To also ensure companies’ contribution to a more sustainable world, the UN has established the SDG Ambition. As the projects most often take place under the aegis of companies, we use SDG Ambition as a framework for sustainability.

Historically speaking, projects have typically related primarily to economy. But now the UN broadens the concept of value to also include the environment, social relationships, economy, partnerships, and peace.

The sustainable focus of the course provides an understanding that it is no longer enough for the project to simply centre on sustainability up till the day of delivery, as a large part of the impact comes from the products created by the individual project. This is why a much longer time frame is needed.

The broader understanding of value and the longer time frame entails a substantial increase in the number of sources able to influence the project. Therefore, it is crucial that the project approach is created for quick and efficient adaptation.

Agile project management
This is exactly what agile project management is designed to do. And why Sustainable Agile Projects is based on the global leading approach within agile project management – Agile PM® from Agile Business Consortium – with a strong focus on practicalities.
