On the road towards a sustainable future, one of the topics which finds frequent mention is the circular economy. This requires that we look at initiatives with a total and holistic perspective. This applies to project professionals as well. How do we as project managers reconcile between project as a temporary endeavor with a circular economy which is essentially long-term and operational in nature? How can we contribute towards and benefit from this economic activity?

This talk will deliberate on understanding the opportunities and challenges of a circular economy and what it presents for project professionals. It will help in further exploring our roles in our projects, organizations and    society. Examples and case studies will be included to give a picture of current happenings.

ADVERTISEMENTS

"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy."

- Douglas Adams
