Addressing Organisational Pressures as Drivers towards Sustainability in Manufacturing Projects and Project Management Methodologies

Fotios Misopoulos, Roula Michaelides, Mohammad Salehuddin, Vicky Manthou, Zenon Michaelides
2018 Sustainability  
The concept of sustainability continues to rapidly grow in interest from disparate academic and industrial fields. This research aims to elucidate further the implications of the sustainability drivers upon project management methodological approaches specifically in the manufacturing industry. This paper studies the three prevalent dialogues in the field of sustainability, relevant to the environmental and social aspects of the Triple Bottom Line, and utilises Institutional Theory to propose

Furthermore, the literature bodies of Lean and Life Cycle Analysis in manufacturing project management guided our reflection that the various drivers of sustainability put forward that do not consider the distinctive organisational pressures fail to address institutional and systemic project management issues holistically. The authors further conduct and draw on a systematic literature review on the constructs of sustainability in the manufacturing industry and their adopted methodologies, evaluating academic articles published from the year 2001 to 2017. The findings indicate that normative pressures prevail over coercive and mimetic pressures and are seen as the main drivers of sustainability in the manufacturing industry. In an incremental reductionist approach, project management knowledge areas are analysed, and the study posits that Stakeholder and Communications Management are two of the knowledge areas that need to integrate the above pressures to achieve cohesive sustainable industrial results. The principle contribution is to offer a new conceptual perspective on integrating project management knowledge areas with Institutional Theory pressures for more sustainable project management methodologies.

We report our experience from treating a large number of patients who presented to the Emergency Department of our Hospital with ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Of the 196 patients who presented with ST elevation AMI over a period of 12 months, 100 (51%) patients underwent primary PCI. Clinical and angiographic data were collected and patients were followed up for 9 months. Technical details of the primary PCI, including use

Our results are in keeping with those published by other groups performing primary PCI. We demonstrated the importance of time interval from onset of symptoms until PCI is started. We found that the use of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors was beneficial and emphasized the predictive value of left ventricular ejection fraction >50% and the importance of achieving TIMI 3 flow in the AMI related artery at the end of the procedure. I N T R O D U C T I O N Over the past two decades, cardiologists have witnessed and proved the significance of timely opening of the occluded infarct-related coronary artery in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Several recent studies [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] have demonstrated that the most efficient way to achieve a good result is through percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The adoption of primary PCI as routine treatment in AMI by most large hospitals represents an important advance in the management of patients with coronary artery disease. Patients presenting with AMI, who are treated with primary PCI show decreased mortality and suffer less adverse cardiac events compared with C ARD IOLOGY UPDA TE 20 06 First and Second
