Strategies for Project Sponsorship
by Peter Taylor
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 workshop 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.
The course will follow the theme of understanding and deploying certain strategies for delivering effective sponsorship within your organisation.
The workshop can be focused on project managers wanting to learn to be more effective with the sponsors they work with, or for project sponsors wanting to improve their skills. Who should attend?
• Project Managers
• Project Sponsors
• PMO staff
Regardless of your experience with project sponsorship in the past this workshop will allow you tounderstand more from all perspectives.
You will learn more about understanding the project sponsors you work with, or indeed what type of sponsor you are, and how to develop an effective working partnership between project manager and project sponsor.
• Better understand what role a sponsor should play and what good sponsorship looks like
• Learn how to understand the project sponsor that you have and how to work effectively with them
• Be aware of the role that you should play in developing executive sponsorship inside your organisation
• Recognise at a personal level what is needed to make the transition to project sponsor
