- The power of projects to create a better future.
Projects possess an inherent creation power. They enable us to establish new hospitals or schools, build or rebuild all kinds of infrastructure and organize for sustainable transformation. Especially Mega Projects are forces of societal change and support us in turning ideas into life. The presentation discusses challenges and opportunities of delivering infrastructure and offers stakeholder-orientation as an essential principle in contemporary Project Management. We provide concrete methods to consider sustainable development principles in managing projects for co-creating a better future.
