The Programme and Project Sponsorship course has been developed to provide a clear understanding of what is required of the Programme and Project Sponsor. Not only does it address the key question, "what should I be doing?", but also, "what is an appropriate level of my involvement?", and "what should others be doing for me?".
The candidates will gain the skills needed to lead a successful delivery of a policy or strategy.
The key thing that candidates will learn are:
- The Sponsor role and how it differs for programme and projects.
- How to establish a vision and think about the implementation approach.
- How to focus on the key processes and documentation.
- Identifying and avoiding potential failure.
