Sustainable Project Management

Kindly note that the September 2017 training will be administered in swedish and is targeted towards swedish speaking candidates.

 

Who Should Participate?

This is a basic Project Management training designed for those who want to develop in their role as a Project Manager and also learn how to integrate Sustainability practices in Project Management methods. 

The objective of the program is to train anyone involved in Project Management and/or Sustainability to be able to plan, implement and complete projects taking into account the three P’s of Sustainability – People, Planet and Profit.

 

Project Management with Focus on Sustainability

This is the first training of its kind that merges established methods and tools for Project Management with Sustainability practices, giving the participant practical skills for implementing projects in a sustainable way. The training is unique in its focus on using Sustainability in the processes of Project Management, and not just in the end result of a project. 

A Project Manager is someone who applies specific knowledge and skills to make sure that a defined set of project activities are implemented in order to meet the needs and expectations of the project receiver. In order to fulfill the requirements of the project, there is a need to balance the parameters of Scope, Time, Cost, and Sustainability. Furthermore, there is a need to take into account the different requirements of different stakeholders, as well as defined and undefined requirements.

Project Management also calls for applying leadership skills and coaching techniques in order to align the project team for reaching the project goal.

The LIFE Academy Sustainable Project Management training aims at providing you with tools to reach your project goal in a sustainable way.

This training can be tailor made to the specific needs of an organization, but it is also given as an open training ranging from 3-5 days.
