  19. What is the Manifesto for Responsible Project Management? RPM is a call for project professionals to expand their roles by advocating for beneficial change by facilitating conversations that value: • Conscious awareness over ignorance of project impacts • Regenerative and circular approaches over consumption, damage and waste • Collaboration and engagement over competition and control.
  20. A call for action Rationale • Project Managers have the technical skills • Project Managers can make stakeholder connections • The challenges and opportunities are interdependent and intra- dependent challenges and opportunities:  Social  Political  Technological  Climate • Projects Managers can believe their responsibility is inward towards the project.
  21. Example • Stakeholders united in their need for change e.g. NetZero • Success depends on technology + behaviour change • Citizen & organisational activism Climate change - as an illustration of project challenges
  22. New project types • Planned mitigation projects • Planned adaptation projects • Emergency response projects • Decommissioning projects as businesses exit products and industries There will be many projects … And most will fail.
  23. Possible reasons for project failure … • Opposition from people who do not wish to change their lives • Local impacts of mitigation and adaptation • Behavioural changes to lifestyles and working practices are very difficult to achieve • Project analytics increase accountability but not responsibility • Citizens are increasingly demanding that organizations share and demonstrate their values • If people do not trust the intent of those delivering projects, they will oppose them.
