People's Choice: Cultivating Your Project Sponsor

Thursday, November 10, 2016

"The Project Sponsor’s role on a  project is the single most critical predictor of project success. That said, many if not most Project Sponsors have no idea what they are supposed to be doing. Imagine Captain Pickard from Star Trek – “Make it so!” That’s the extent of the contribution for most organizational Sponsors. It’s up to you as the Project Manager to cultivate the Project Sponsor.  For you project to be successful, you must make sure the Project Sponsor is successful. 

In this session, Lou will share with you research and strategies that will help you influence up.  After attending, you’ll be able to:

  • Leverage the fact that Trust is Bi-directional and grow both ends
  • Identify and implement critical pre-requisites prior to cultivating your Sponsor
  • Clarify and build a strong knowledge of what a Project Sponsor expects and needs from both a business and personal position
  • Clarify and build a strong base with knowledge of what strengths and blind spots you bring to the relationship.
