You’ve heard a lot about sustainability in the news, and your company may even have a sustainability department. Did you know that sustainability is also a core focus of project management? Project managers need to be fiscally sustainable – they manage time and budget – as well as socially and environmentally sustainable – they manage resources. However, sustainability isn’t just being “green,” being aware of our impact on the environment. We also need to evaluate risks related to labor practices, human rights, fair business dealings and consumer issues. Learn how to integrate sustainability into your own project management practices, and guide your company towards sustainability. One project manager CAN make a difference!
Underlying cultural values drive business behavior. So many businesses depend on mission-critical projects, and often these project team leaders utilize resources with a variety of cultural backgrounds. This webinar starts with behaviors you may have experienced in your project teams (such as slow response times, lack of ideas, unwillingness to share problems in a timely manner, distrust, lack of communication) and focuses on possible underlying cultural orientations that drive that kind of behavior. The second portion of the webinar will focus on what project leaders do that may unintentionally discriminate against people who are "differeny" and offers advice on behavior options to be more effective when working in a multi-cultural environment.
