Sustainable Project Management with Certification


Learn how to implement sustainability in projects

Get a deeper understanding of the nature of sustainability and how to integrate this into the projects.

In a time of growing climate concerns and demands for greater environmental responsibility it is more important than ever to take an active part in the transition to a more sustainable world.

Since a substantial part of the world’s economy is related to project activity, we can make a genuine difference by making sustainability a part of our projects.

In this class you will learn how to practically apply the sustainable framework and Agile methods and how to optimize the sustainable effect of your projects – on time.

You will learn how to make sustainable projects work from start to finish and how to adapt the method from project to project, even with a geographically widespread team.

    Sustainability

    The 17 SDGs of the UN were designed to help nations increase sustainability. To ensure that corporations are also able to contribute to this goal the UN has established SDG Ambition.

    As projects most often take place within an organisation, we use SDG Ambition as our reference framework for sustainability.

    Traditionally the most important considerations in undertaking a project have been financial. Now, the introduction of the UN sustainability goals has expanded these considerations to include environmental, social, financial, partnerships and peace goals.  

    It is no longer enough to consider the final delivery day as the end of the project focus. A large part of the environmental impact is generated by the products delivered. The environmental focus of this course makes it clear that a much more inclusive definition of value as well as a longer time horizon is needed.

    This wider understanding of impact and the increased time frame increases the number of contributing variables considerably. It is therefore crucial, that the project management system can adapt quickly and efficiently.

    Agile project management
    This is precisely what Agile Project Management is designed to do. This is why Sustainable Agile Projects is based on the most globally recognised approach to Agile project management – Agile PM® from Agile Business Consortium – with a strong focus on practical implementation.
