Strategies for Project Sponsorship
Project managers are often faced with challenges in working with sponsors and within their organization. One reason for these challenges is that those who have authority do not have the same experience and expertise in project management as the project managers that they work with. It is up to the project manager to ensure that those providing project oversight understand best practices required to deliver successful projects that bring value to the business.
