Are you a project manager or leader of your organization? Are looking for a higher return on your projects all while making a meaningful and sustainable impact on society? How would you like to up your organization’s efficiency and impact, simply by becoming a more agile organization in tune with the newest trends? If you are interested in any of these 3 things then read very close to what we’re about to share with you. One of the main issues at the beginning of the 21st century is how to achieve sustainable development while remaining an agile organization. Yet, sustainability and agility are complementary concepts. In a world where project management is becoming a vital force for innovation and organizational behaviour, organizations must adapt.

Project Management Association of Canada warmly invites all interested PMs to its 2020 spring conference.

In this coming event the EXACT same techniques and methods that have made numerous organizations more nimble and more profitable will be shown:

  • How to become agile and show assurance of agile delivery?

Still, wondering the value of agile sustainable project management?

Sustainability is an increasingly important business consideration. Bain & Company surveyed 297 global companies in 2018: 81% said sustainability is more important to their business today than it was five years ago, and 85% believe that it will be even more important in five years.

Good sustainability practices can pay off

More loyal consumers

  • A 2017 study on corporate social responsibility revealed that 88% of consumers will be more loyal to a company that supports social or environmental issues.
