Sustainability-Focused Project Leader: Why We Are Uniquely Placed To Deliver the Sustainability Transformation
Bringing a sustainable future into our grasp relies upon the successful execution of thousands of well-conceived projects. Project management and project leaders are critical in achieving more sustainable practices. Executives must provide them with more flexibility in managing projects, moving past the traditional “iron triangle” of project management — managing time, budget, and quality. Sustainability cannot be achieved simply through rigid planning and traditional project targets. Project managers must be unleashed to reach these goals innovatively. CEOs should empower a new kind of sustainability-focused project manager to lead organizational transformation. The Project Management Office (PMO) can play an important role when analyzing new project ideas. It should develop new guidelines for sponsors and managers to increase the focus of their projects on such sustainable outcomes and benefits.
