Project Sponsor 1-Day Masterclass 

Executive education designed for Project Sponsors

We're entering a new age of project leadership. We need your help to determine ‘who will define this new era?' Through our Future Figures 2019 Professional Advancement Framework, we will bring leaders together, and equip them for the road ahead. Expect to see a series of different opportunities coming your way as part of the Future Figures program.

Project Sponsor: vision to value creation

As project management professionals, we know that effective sponsorship is a critical piece in project success. This is especially true in environments of increased focus on corporate governance and the need for accountability, transparency and the ability to implement strategy. The Sponsor's role is a difficult one: there are many pressures to contend with, especially at the higher levels of management when multiple priorities compete for scarce organisational resources, capacity, funding, and focus. 
From communicating vision to optimising value creation, the Masterclass: Project Sponsor is a workshop for executives and senior management seeking to fulfil the role more effectively and maximise the contribution to project success.
Sponsorship is a unique and important area that is mostly underserved, so the Masterclass addresses the areas that senior management need to focus on in order to promote a culture of project management excellence in their organisation. It also covers specific activities they should be doing as sponsors of a project, specific things they should look for in projects they are sponsoring, and specific questions they should be asking of Project Managers and teams throughout the project lifecycle.
This Masterclass will suit those working in the field of project management across any sector, and at a management/leadership level. For those already in a Sponsor role, this Masterclass will prepare you for certification as a Practicing Project Sponsor (CPPS).
