Governance program for Project Sponsors and Project Control Boards

Ultimate accountability for project success is with the Project Sponsor and Project Control Board.

So, how can you maximise the opportunity for successful delivery of your project?

Projects are now the mechanism for change in our organisations but they can be high in complexity and risk.  Significant investment in time and funding is required and too often, successful delivery isn’t as straight forward as first envisaged. Traditionally, Sponsors and Control Boards (sometimes referred to as Steering Committees) have scant information regarding their roles and responsibilities. Our program is specifically designed for Project Sponsors and  Project Control Boards.  Content focusses not on project management, but on directing and controlling the project which is the governance function that the Sponsor and Board is appointed to perform. Some of the topics included are:

  • What the research says about why projects succeed or fail
  • Project management methodologies – what are the differences?
  • What benefits come from using PRINCE2® and what does it look like?
  • How to set up for success and the Business Case
  • Understanding your role and how to be an effective Sponsor
  • How an effective Project Board should be structured
  • Appointing and getting the best from your Project Manager
  • What to delegate and what to expect you will be asked to authorise
  • Stakeholders, expectation management and change
  • The project benefits review;  defining and measuring critical success factors
