PRiSM (Projects integrating Sustainable Methods) Practitioner

This is an online or in person project management course with tutor support. It aims to combine the principles of Green or Sustainable Project Management with mainstream tried and tested project management methodologies.

The course combines theory and practical case studies, offering an interactive experience. It introduces sustainable development concepts into a project management environment, responding to the global challenges of today’s world and the need to implement sustainable change in organisations. The course prepares participants to perceive and manage projects from a sustainable perspective, without compromising the business case.

The PRiSM™ (PRojects integrating Sustainable Methods) element introduces a broader focus to delivering projects which has largely been ignored: factors such as resource efficiency, waste, energy reduction and environmental impact assessments. Utilising sustainability concepts such as the circular economy, and linking to the Global Sustainable Development Goals, the PRiSM practitioner will be best placed to deliver a more sustainable outcome for all their projects.

About this course:

In this course you will learn the skills required to effectively handle and manage sustainability in projects and ensure that both the management of the project and the outcomes are sustainable.

PRiSM™ (Projects integrating Project Management) is a project management method, encompassing all the essentials for running a successful project based on sustainable principles. The method ensures the delivery of business objectives while reducing negative environmental impact.

PRiSM is based on the award winning P5 Standard for Sustainability in Project Management, and is effective in reducing project level risk, from an environmental, social and economic perspective while expanding the range of benefits to be gained.

PRiSM is not a replacement for the bodies of knowledge such as Prince2, PMBOK, IPM or APM but it can be used in conjunction with these methods.
