what is it
PRISM is an abbreviation of project integrating sustainability measures. the journey based on this methodology focuses on integrating sustainability into the entirety of the project lifecycle and consists of a set of guidelines, tools, and techniques that help to integrate social and environmental considerations into the planning, execution and evaluation of projects.
the methodology was developed by an american company called GPM (global green project management) and first published in 2013
why to use
a journey based on PRISM aims to ensure that the benefits of a project are sustainable and lasting, and that any negative impacts are minimized or mitigated. this can include using environmentally friendly materials and technologies, as well as engaging in community activities and working with local partners to ensure the project is integrated into the local community and economy.
when to use
it helps to ensure that the needs and concerns of all stakeholders are taken into account, and that the project is aligned with their values anda priorities. PRISM emphasizes the importance of involving all stakeholders in the project planning process, including local communities, government agencies, NGOs, and other interested parties.
how to use
the PRISM journey has five points of divergence that must be applied with the team to debate each of the themes proposed in the original methodology. for each topic in the original text, we put together a divergence kit on strateegia.digital with questions to help the team collaboratively define the necessary decisions for the project.
each block of GPM original methodology was converted into a divergence kit, generating the five kits in the list below:
