The Programme and Project Sponsorship course has been developed to provide a clear understanding of what is required of the Programme and Project Sponsor.

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.
