Name of the Course: Setting the Project Sponsor up for Success

Check out the Course!


My conviction is that the role of a Project Sponsor is the most important role in any change programme. Yet it is probably the least understood in a project management context and least supported in terms of training and coaching support. This is why I have developed an Online Course for Project Sponsors.

“Setting the Project Sponsor up for Success” is the Course that delivers the basic set-up for any Project Sponsor looking to fine-tune their performance in the role. The Course takes them through a journey of discovery and learning – with it they will start on a journey to become a more effective and visible Project Sponsor. They will save time in the long run, be less stressed and have better results (more projects on time in budget to quality).

The Course explores how their traditional way of working in the project context might have caused them overwhelm and placed too much on their plate. They will better understand their role, eliminate assumptions and define the role for their specific circumstances to then formalize and agree to it with the team. They will also reflect on where they might have some skills gaps and actively establish a powerful action plan to form new and better Project Sponsor habits.

Learning Objectives

  • Lesson 1: How to empower the Project Sponsor role (perceptional change)
  • Lesson 2: Revolutionise the Project Sponsor role (strategy building)
  • Lesson 3: Change your habits to be a successful Project Sponsor (taking action)

Target audience

Senior managers in organisations, they could be finance managers, directors, middle or senior managers in all sectors, all functions. Wherever there is a project, there should be a senior person sponsoring it and performing the role well!

“I have worked on many Change Programmes and I can’t think of many examples where Project Sponsorship was carried out inline with Best Practices. Most Project Sponsors would benefit from this guidance!”
