Business Management / Project Management
The ongoing changes in population, climate, and the availability of energy have
resulted in unprecedented threats and opportunities of which all project and
program managers, portfolio managers, and public planners need to be aware.
The
New Triple Constraints for Sustainable Projects, Programs, and Portfolios
offers a clear look at how these constraints will impact project undertakings and
overlay the current classic constraints of cost, schedule, and performance.
The book provides current facts and information on population, climate change,
and energy issues—identifying trends and outlining opportunities in the form
of a set of overlays (summary conclusions). The overlays are indexed to current
changes that collectively represent a major turning point in the way we use
resources and our growing need to seek sustainability. Identifying how changes
in the new triple constraints will impact long-range planning, the book:
• Explains the rationale behind population forecasts and the likely impact
on global supply and demand
• Highlights emerging trends in global temperatures and sea level rise,
and the impacts on ecology, biology, and the marine environment
without political spin
• Includes SWOT analyses of fossil fuels, nuclear fuel, and renewable fuels
to assist in planning programs that depend upon these energy sources
• Provides expert estimates and forecasts of energy availability
and alternatives
• Discusses the risks of various energy options
• Contains supporting appendices and a comprehensive bibliography
Most program life cycles last 5 to 10 years, and infrastructure programs last 40
to 50 years. This text provides a rational basis for approaching the new problems
with which all program and portfolio managers will soon have to deal. It will help
you identify and recognize these current and projected circumstances and risks
so you will understand and be prepared to make the most of the major changes
impacting the upcoming decision environment.
