Every project should have a management level sponsor. Every time again it is proven that management support is a critical success factor for projects. However, organizations do not take the time to understand what sponsorship means, why it is so crucial and how sponsorship can be improved. The workshop Project Sponsorship has been designed to support managers in creating a positive environment where projects can prosper thanks to excellent sponsorship.

This workshop provides project sponsors the knowledge, tools and ‘best practices’ necessary to operate more effectively in their sponsor role. They will get a clear view on role and responsibilities as a sponsor, resulting in successful project closeouts. This workshop provides more value by taking senior project managers to the workshop.
