Opening and welcome speech


The Practice of Sustainable Project Management

Gilbert Silvius

From the vision that ‘Sustainability needs change’ and ‘Change is organized in projects’, the concept of ‘Sustainable Project Management’ emerged. However, What is Sustainable Project Management?  How to do it? How to make it practical? and What are the effects? Does it make projects more successful? In this presentation, Gilbert Silvius will share the latest insights of his research on the topic, with a focus on the practices of Sustainable Project Management.


What Makes a World-Class PMO

Americo Pinto

What factors can contribute to the success of a PMO? What is the future of project management offices? You've probably heard a lot about trendy PMO models and what the future PMO should look like. There are numerous points of view, but the real-world experience shows that magic pills do not determine PMO success. Hearing the voices of those who work in the PMO trenches can help us understand many challenges. And while there is no single path to success, there are common elements that can suggest how to make our PMOs invaluable to the top management and the organization. In his session, Americo Pinto (co-author of the book WHAT MAKES A WORLD-CLASS PMO with Jack Duggal) will share first hand some of the insightful advice obtained by the authors from a comprehensive survey and interviews with dozens of seasoned PMO Leaders globally, members of the PMO Global Alliance community. Their book is expected to be published by the end of 2022.

What (Not) to Do in a Megaproject: Lessons from Baltic Synchronisation

Artūras Kuliešas

What is it like to manage a megaproject or a major programme?

What skills and competences you need to possess to effectively keep a massive transformational change on track for a long period? Drawing from his experience as the programme manager for the programme that is delivering Lithuanian power grid synchronisation, Arturas shares his insights about what to expect and what you should be prepared for when the scope, complexity, timeframe and costs are in the “mega” range.

The Long-term Value Creation Through Enterprise ESG Journey & Practical Applications

Auksė Žukauskienė

Organizations are increasing their focus on sustainability, many of them for the first time, in response to changing regulations. As sustainability becomes increasingly mainstream, a shift in approach and an innovative mindset is needed to build an understanding of the opportunities it presents towards long-term value creation. During this presentation, we will explore different maturity levels of ESG readiness to create long-term value in different dimensions. Using practical examples, we will discuss some long-term value drivers to showcase that sustainability could be expanded beyond the adherence to regulations towards business opportunity and competitive advantage as well as contribution to society.

6D – sustainable design and the power of the data.

Liudas Galdikas

Digital design of sustainable buildings, the reality of today, and the daily routine of my last eight years. During the design process using digital tools such as BIM, LCA, dynamic energy modeling and other 6D simulations enable us to compare different alternatives, simulate building behavior, and make informed decisions.   Apart from technology, the focus remains on the   end-users and team communication. To manage arising government and client requirements (BIM, high level of detail), we embrace advanced PM methods such as ICE  (Integrated Concurrent Engineering) combined with Agile - help us to keep order when multiple disciplines start working parallel and multiple issues arise.  Sustainable approach, open and live communication, open bi-directional high-quality data flow – this is our way of making quality buildings come to life.
