  • The Sponsor Perspective: Project Strategies for Success Recorded: Mar 20 2012 46 mins
    Project managers have long faced the triple constraints of scope, schedule and cost. Yet too often when these hurdles have been overcome, the project might STILL be deemed a failure. Or the project might not add to the project manager'€™s reputation. Why not?

    Project managers deal with delivery, procurement, and people puzzles, to name a few. While real, these are not necessarily aligned with the pain points of a Project Sponsor. The project is merely the cross section where the project manager's and sponsor'€™s interests are temporarily aligned.

    We will explore the perspectives of the Project Sponsor, and assist project managers with strategies for working with sponsors of varying aptitude. This sometimes unwritten world may well hold the keys to project success, and the real results the PM is expected to deliver.

    In this 45 minute webcast you will learn:
    • The traits of a good Sponsor
    • Types of Sponsors and how to work with each
    • What Project Managers can do to line up Sponsor success
