Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the practice of coordinating sourcing, production, inventory management and transportation among all the actors and focuses on speed, cost and reliability of operations. Sustainable SCM adds the goals of environmental and social values to it and this means addressing global issues such as climate change, water security, deforestation, human rights, fair labour practices corruption etc. In short we have to consider all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN. SCM is inherently operational though various projects could be identified within the chain. The Sustainability paradigm has added another dimension for projects within SCM because many of the initiatives being discussed now and in the near future are in fact projects. These are guided by the recent interest in principles and practices of circular economy, sustainable sourcing waste recovery & management, resource efficiency, reverse logistics etc among others. At some point in time, possibly in the coming decade, sustainability as a mindset will be fully set and one would view it as a an operational parameter, till then all efforts to become sustainable will be achieved largely through projects.
As the world is facing a huge gap for 25 million new project management professionals, understanding and promoting the strengths of women and those identifying as women in the profession is critical. Recent data from PMI, presented in March of 2023, indicates that male project managers outnumber female project managers 3:1. Research has shown however that traits like empathy, listening, collaborative and servant leadership, key traits associated with female managers, enhance engagement and collaboration. In this presentation you will learn more about the differences between men and women as managers; the benefits that women bring to projects and organizations; how to improve your boardroom influence with executive presence behaviors; and you will discover tactics that elevate your success as a female project manager.
Sustainability has become a key parameter for organizations and this means that projects and operations have to be planned and implemented with this objective. At the project level it may be difficult to bring in sustainability initiatives because often times the scope of the project is already determined or it is contractual. To get a sustainability perspective one has to consider it beyond a project outcome and further this needs to be addressed by senior management. Therefore, an organizational level approach would be more appropriate.
