Debby Goedknegt is lecturer and project manager at the Institute for the Built Environment of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (HU). Sustainability is the main theme in her work (in both education and practice).  She is, for instance, the manager of the bachelor minor period called “People-Planet-Profit” in which students participate and execute practice based research on for instance the improvement of the waste management system in municipalities in South Africa. Within the scope of the professionalization of HU staff, she decided to get her master’s degree in project management (Master of Project Management – MPM). The theme of this master was and still is sustainability. Hence the choice for this master and the research on sustainability in project management. Both the research for this paper and the research for her master’s thesis were executed on sustainability in project management and in particular on the influence of different project management roles to adhere to sustainability principles in both the project’s process and its result.
