Working With Project Sponsors Course in Singapore
Working With Project Sponsors Course in Singapore
All projects have sponsors. They can be an individual or a group of people. If they are a group, it’s not unusual to find that one person within the group is the point person. For the most part, sponsors are assigned to a project. As such, they may not have sufficient skills or knowledge about what their role is and what responsibilities they have to perform to enhance the success of the project.
A competent project sponsor is one of the critical success factors for any project. Sponsors need to be totally active project participants. The best ones work closely with the project manager and help them deliver quality project results to the organization.
Skilled project sponsors clearly understand the problem to be solved and ensure that the solution fixes the problem. This individual or group of people also knows where to draw the “good enough” line is to avoid the project team pushing towards excellent and wasting organization resources in the process.
These type of sponsors know how to build the right team to solve the problem and also know how to hold those teams accountable. They make prompt and thoughtful decisions even when they are tough to make.
Satisfying working relationships with sponsors don’t just happen on their own. They must be consciously built. That work begins by not assuming they understand what is involved in sponsoring projects. Project managers should create a checklist that identifies the sponsor’s responsibilities for each phase of the project. Doing so early in the project helps decrease communication risks as the project progresses. It also provides a baseline to assess the relationship at different project phases.
This course describes what a project sponsor is and how their contribution or lack thereof impacts a project. Participants, at the end of the course, have the skills, tools, and knowledge to leverage the role of the project sponsor to achieve successful project outcomes.
