In this month’s issue of PM World Today, A.J.Gilbert Silvius and Ron Schipper offer a perspective on project management that, whilst not entirely new, is still paradoxically something of a rarity: the role of projects and project managers in business sustainability. I say, paradoxically because given the function of projects to deliver business change, you’d have thought they would be the standard bearers of sustainable practice. Let’s hope that Gilbert and Ron’s work will strike a chord and provide a catalyst to enable projects to assume that role. Gilbert Silvius and Ron Schipper are authors of the forthcoming Gower book, Sustainability in Project Management.
