It is over fifty years since we identified project management as a formal subject of study, considered as a practice and knowledge on the subject collated and codified. Since then, it has grown considerably, with many standards being developed, training & consulting organizations set up and information disseminated among many industries and domains. At the same time today, we see there is a prospect of potential changes everywhere. Change, because of the business & political conditions, technology and the environment. The recent pandemic has only exacerbated this. All these happenings are forcing organizations, governments and professional communities to re-evaluate our ways of working to meet the challenges now and in the future. This includes the project management community as well.

One of the most significant questions for the future of the project management profession will be our position in relation to huge, complex, and overwhelming environmental and societal problems that cannot be resolved by any organization, government and individual alone. Those problems are often referred to as Grand Challenges. The climate crisis is a prime example of a Grand Challenge with an increasing urgency that needs to be addressed if societies around the world are to survive and prosper. Up to now, project management as a profession has been key for ‘getting things done’, and as such is likely to be a key part of the solution for climate change and other such Grand Challenges.

Sustainable project practices are about more than “being green”. Sustainability requires that we look beyond the scope, schedule, and budget of the temporary project and consider the larger “Triple Bottom Line” that projects operate within. The triple bottom line evaluates performance in a broader perspective considering economic, ecological, and social impacts otherwise known as the 3Ps - Profit, Planet, People. As the agents of change in organizations, Project Managers, are uniquely positioned to identify and lead the change that impacts your “Triple Bottom Line” while creating greater business value.
