About the training
How to work with and how to be an effective project sponsor (1 to 2 day Course) It has been said that 'A project is one small step for the project sponsor, one giant leap for the project manager' - but wouldn't we all be that much happier if that 'giant leap' was supported by a really professional project sponsor? Based on the research from the new book ‘Strategies for Project Sponsorship’ (Management Concepts Press) one of the books authors, Peter Taylor, will lead this master class to explore the current challenges of project sponsorship maturity and will deliver some techniques for creating an effective partnership with today’s project sponsors, as well as looking to the future on what could be. Project managers represent the group that has the greatest level of expertise in managing projects and one duty we have as experts is to advance the practices within our organizations, and this means addressing areas where the organization is not performing within best practices, including the selection of the project sponsor. And we also have a job to do and that means working (effectively) with the project sponsors that we have in place.
