S3E73: What Responsible Project Management is with Dr Karen Thompson, Dr Nigel L. Williams & Dave Corbin

In this episode Dale and Val lift the wrapper on Responsible Project Management, and how we can help support responsible and environmentally aware and conscientious project managers.  So what is Responsible Project Management? Their aim is to transform beliefs about project management.   Achieving project success is increasingly challenging and ensuring a project is successful requires attention to the project context as well as the parameters of cost, time and quality.  New understandings and new competencies are needed for project professionals to navigate the complexities of the social, environmental and economic context of a project.  Our purpose is to contribute ideas, events and resources to support the development of the profession of Project Management.
