Ron Rosenhead

The amount of evidence is damning. Report after report points it out. But we still have the same problem - a lack of project sponsor support for projects.

In this workshop, Ron Rosenhead will explore what the project sponsor should be doing; including using some current research. In addition, he will share some stories from project managers who have had (mainly) poor experiences, hopefully getting you to share your stories as well. He will also look at some of the possible ways that can be used to try and obtain buy in of project sponsors, seeing how this can be adapted in your own company and in your own situation.

Some of you reading this may not be project sponsors however you may be in the future. Why not bring along a project sponsor so that we can hear their views? If project sponsorship is not taken seriously by companies (and sponsors) projects will continue to be delivered in the same way. As the research points out, change by companies and senior managers is needed and rapidly!
