About the course

Content
At the course we work with:

  • What is sustainability and why is it relevant?
  • How the legislation increases the need for reporting on sustainability. How it increases the need to understand sustainability impacts throughout any supply chain or investment opportunity and how to prepare for its implementation.
  • The methodological ‘plug-in’, which makes it possible to move from traditional project management or product development – Agile or not – into their sustainable versions. Our ambition is to make the ‘plug-in’ as efficient and manageable as possible.
  • How to realize the sustainability ambitions of your organisation – project by project.
  • How to determine which effect and which deliverables will result from various projects or product development initiatives.
  • How to promote and communicate the sustainability gains inherent in your project/product development.

We do not cover basic disciplines in project implementation nor product development.

Benefit to the participant

  • The urgency of sustainable projects. A greater understanding of the timeliness of sustainable projects and product development, as the legislation has already increased the need for them.
  • The ability to implement sustainability in projects and product development. A deeper understanding of the nature of sustainability and how to integrate this into the initiatives.
  • Learning how best to report on the sustainability impacts of a project.
  • From business drivers to project/product impact. Knowledge of how business drivers impact strategy and how projects and product development can be focussed to deliver the desired impact. E.g., traditional earning potential combined with CO2-reduction, equality, or any other sustainability goal in the deliverables, at investment candidates and/or throughout the supply chain.
  • The ability to adapt quickly and efficiently. Clarification of how to frame the project/product development and how to react when a deliverable takes longer to complete than estimated.
  • Sustainable agility ensures market adaptability. Enhanced adaptability to adopt to a changing market by integrating sustainability and Agile project management, allowing employees to adjust deliverables based on market conditions or investor expectations.

Benefits to the organisation

  • Ability to convert sustainability ambitions into impact. The course will give the participant a thorough understanding of sustainability and how to systematically deliver the required sustainability impact in projects and product development.
  • Improve sustainability numbers. This course will teach the employee how to activate and optimise the sustainability impact in projects and product development already scheduled.
  • Increased impact in sustainability initiatives and in “normal”. The participant will learn how to maximise the sustainability impact in both projects and product development designed to make a sustainability impact – as well as in all your “normal” initiatives.
  • Green working processes. After the course, the participant will understand how to work in a sustainable manner during both projects and product development.
  • Balanced impact focus. The participant will understand how your organisation can divide efforts between Prosperity, People, Planet, Peace, and Partnerships in a data driven and highly adaptable manner.
  • Enhanced adaptability to meet the evolving needs of a dynamic market. By integrating sustainability and Agile project management, employees can adeptly adjust project deliverables to evolving market conditions, ensuring competitiveness and appealing to sustainability-focused investors.

    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 one of our primary frameworks for sustainability together with ESG.

    Traditionally the most important considerations in undertaking a project or a product development 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 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 used approach can adapt quickly and efficiently.

    Agile Frameworks and Waterfall
    This is precisely what Agile frameworks are designed to do. Therefore, we recommend an agile approach like Scrum, Agile Projects or SAFe® for projects and product development. The concept of this course can be used in combination with the above-mentioned agile frameworks as well as waterfall projects.
