To be a successful project owner/sponsor

How engaged are you in your management role? Are you acting as a sponsor in a proper way? Are you part of a steering committee or are you participating actively in it? Achieve the knowledge of what is expected from you in the different roles to lead projects to success!

Objectives – after the course you will:

  • Understand how to guide and support the project
  • Understand the importance of identifying and following up the benefits of the project
  • Be able to use a project methodology to achieve business goals

To have a management role in a project means to actively participate in the work to realize management’s strategic objectives. The value of the project and the final result depends on the project sponsor’s ability to identify the benefits, make business decisions and monitor the effects. In this course this theory is translated into practice through discussions.
