Project management, business strategy and sustainable development: a review of the literature / Gestão dos projetos, administração estratégica e desenvolvimento sustentável: revisão da literatura

Marisa A Sánchez, Diego Ezequiel Schneider


Uma organização que tem um compromisso com os princípios de sustentabilidade precisa incorporar uma grande variedade dos stakeholders e considerar os aspectos ambientais e sociais como também sua inter relação com questões financeiras. O objetivo deste artigo é fazer uma revisão das contribuições relacionadas com a gestão dos projetos que integram os aspectos de sustentabilidade com foco na administração. Uma estrutura conceitual que íntegra os campos do gerenciamento de projetos, sua administração e desenvolvimento sustentável fornece a estrutura para o estudo. Os resultados mostram uma falta de investigações que fornecem métodos ou estruturas que descrevem como a gestão de projetos deve dar suporte à estratégia e sustentabilidade de uma organização. Este trabalho constitui uma contribuição para pesquisadores interessados em gerenciamento de projetos para que seus esforços se concentram em garantir a governança de sustentabilidade com foco em na administração.
