Sustainability-Focused Project Leader: Why We Are Uniquely Placed To Deliver the Sustainability Transformation

by Antonio Nieto
December 21, 2022 | 60:04 | Views: 13,524 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.59 / 5

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.

We Need to Get Past the IT-centric PMO

by Andy Jordan

For many organizations, PMOs are still inevitably viewed as an IT-aligned function. That needs to change. When a company's only PMO is within IT, there is never going to be sufficient visibility to ensure that the net value delivery is positive.

Successful PMO? Think Small and Custom

by Andy Jordan

How big should the PMO be? Where should it report? There’s no one model for a successful PMO, but there are some common characteristics that will help it succeed.

Respect Agile, Even if You Don’t Understand It

by Andy Jordan

As organizations improve their ability to view all work in one place, it brings the differences of agile into the spotlight. Leaders need to embrace and respect that.

Understanding PMO Complexity

by Andy Jordan

It’s overly simplistic to suggest that one particular type of PMO can be responsible for ensuring the right projects are done, while another type focuses on ensuring that those projects are done in the right way. Project environments are complex, and the PMOs that are responsible for managing those environments need to understand that.

Should Your PMO Go Rogue?

by Andy Jordan

If your PMO doesn’t have a clear mandate, or if the mandate seems misaligned with the things that actually drive improvements, is it okay for it to “go rogue”—to subversively do what it thinks is best even without a mandate?

How Should PMOs Speak to Leadership?

by Andy Jordan

PMOs tend to speak the language of projects—and that's a barrier when it comes to engaging business leaders. To have meaningful communications with leadership, they need to intelligently speak the language of business—the language of value.

Marketing the PMO: A Major Mistake?

by Andy Jordan

If the PMO is an internal function focused on delivering value through the development of an optimized project delivery environment, why does it need to market itself?

How Your PMO Needs to Evolve

by Andy Jordan

For PMOs to evolve and thrive as value enablers for their employer, they need to become proactive, forward-looking functions, considering how they can help other roles in project delivery perform at as high a level as possible—while ensuring that the environment itself is optimized for that performance to occur.

'P' is for Prioritization: 4 Things Your PMO Must Focus On

by Elizabeth Harrin

The ‘P’ in PMO can stand for a lot of things…project, program, portfolio, etc. But what if it stood for prioritization? There are lots of things that need prioritizing, but here are the four most important elements.

What’s Wrong With Failure?

by Andy Jordan

Only 18% of organizations focus on fostering psychological safety and a tolerance of failure in the workplace. How can we address negative environments?

How to Foster Psychological Safety

by Bruce Harpham

Fostering a high level of psychological safety isn’t just about creating a positive workplace—it’s a crucial success factor to achieve all of your PMO goals. Try these four techniques to increase psychological safety at work.

How Flexible and Adaptable Is Your PMO?

by Andy Jordan

Successful PMOs of the future will have a very different mindset to how most PMOs operate today. Are you ready for that? Flexibility can only happen in an environment that supports and encourages it.
