PMIT Construction Community Event - Address, Adapt, Repeat! (Project Management for Deeper Sustainability Outcomes)

Strategic Business Management skills



Over the last decade, the benefits of adaptive and iterative project management have become clearer. Beyond focusing on delivery, adaptive and iterative methods focus on project outcomes in addition to process. This orientation has become even more important as engineering and construction projects need to meet ambitious sustainability targets for existing buildings, in line with national and global emissions reduction targets and adjust to rapidly changing business environments.

Karim Hajjaj, in conversation with Asaph Benun, will discuss best practices, rewards and the pitfalls to avoid with adaptive and iterative project management, looking at strategies for contractual alignment of interests, stakeholder engagement, communications management, scheduling, and cost / value management, to maximize sustainability project outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding how the outcome-based approach aligns with PM principals
  • Mastering the challenges in outcome-based project management
  • Strategies for information management in outcome based projects
  • The project manager’s role in education and stakeholder alignment
