Sustainable Project Management in Transportation
This 3-day course educates and trains learners on best practices for managing projects in a sustainable and regenerative way. The course introduces project management fundamentals such as the triple constraint, product scope vs. work scope, stakeholder engagement, budgeting, and monitoring. However, it differentiates from other courses by detailing best practices in sustainable project management based on the GPM P5 Standard, which encompasses environmental considerations in the areas of People, Planet, Profit, Product, and Process.
Using case studies and examples from the transportation and logistics industry, this course teaches learners the Projects Integrating Sustainable Methods (PRISM) approach to managing the full project life cycle, integrating it with their organization’s existing practices. Learners will be equipped to identify and mitigate risks in areas such as reducing carbon emissions in supply chains, implementing DEI hiring practices, assessing a project’s impact on local ecosystems, and creating local economic benefits, among other considerations. By applying these principles and strategies, learners will develop the skills and knowledge needed to lead sustainable projects in the transportation and logistics industry and beyond.
Upon successful completion of the course and associated examination, the learners will receive GPM-b Certification from Green Project Management in addition to the Statement of Achievement from Algonquin College.
