Thursday 13:00 ISoPM (Karen Thompson and Nigel Williams)
This workshop will explore the concept of Responsible Project Management (RPM) from the perspective of a practitioner. A participative approach will be used to encourage attendees to develop ideas about the challenges and opportunities of managing projects with conscious attention to intended and unintended consequences. Practical steps that can be taken will be identified and discussed. Participants will have an opportunity to assess their own project or organisation using the ten principles of RPM.
Participants can expect to take away from the workshop:
Appreciation of the limits and challenges to existing project management practices
Understanding of the relationship between RPM and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Approaches for initiating RPM in your organisation
Materials to be used within their project or organisation to sustain RPM.

The International Seminar on Project Management is the English stream of our congress. It is organized in the context of ICPME but with a somewhat different structure from the rest of the streams. In addition to the communications defenses presented to ICPME, it also includes invited papers from international experts, workshops, etc. All congresspeople are invited to participate in the ISoPM, especially those who speak English.
