Too many project leaders think rigidly about Waterfall and Agile project management methodologies and believe they must choose between the two. But many projects — especially those with diverse stakeholder needs and complex structures — benefit from a hybrid approach that combines aspects of Waterfall and Agile. The rise of hybrid methods isn’t tied to a particular time or event; instead, they have evolved organically as a response to the needs of modern, complex projects. A review of the key components of Waterfall and Agile allows project leaders to select among them to build a hybrid approach based on the unique demands of each project.
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.
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.
Recycling or Recovery has been in vogue for the last two or three decades as a means to save the environment and many organizations , communities and countries have embraced it as priority But is this enough ? How do Repairs / Refurbish or Reuse / Repurpose compare with recycling /recovery?
