CKE Masterclass: Sustainability, the Environment & Green Issues for Managers of Projects
23rd - 24th July 2009
Salford University Business Park
Salford M6 6FP
This is a two day, intensive, participative course for managers of projects who have specific interests or responsibilities for sustainability, the environment and green issues.
This course will explore the opportunities and obligations of managers at every step of the project cycle: from establishing the client customers’ ethos on such matters in context, through interpretation in briefs, application in team selections, strategy options, design solutions, procurement, into delivery stages and on to end user briefings and debriefings – with potential pitfalls and difficulties along the way. We will look at the issues of layering of upward and downward greening of products, projects, frameworks, supply chains and communities.
This course will include a variety of presentations, group activities, discussions on interpretations and practicalities, an external excursion, guest speakers, opportunities for networking and social exchange. It will be intensive, entertaining, demanding, educational and all in two days!
Delegates will leave with a range of ideas, tips, techniques, and sources which will enable them to provide valuable MANAGEMENT to these vital issues.
The course will be delivered by:
