Executive Sponsor Training
Tuesday, August 18th 9am-12pm (In Person)
The objective for this course is to provide leaders that will be supporting improvement initiatives the tools and knowledge to be successful project sponsors. There are several roles an executive sponsor will play:
Ensuring a project’s goals are aligned with the overall company strategy
Gathering support, communicating goals and overcoming resistance from senior executives
Providing ongoing direction to the project team during a project’s lifecycle
Removing barriers and helping the project team overcome challenges
Executive sponsors typically have high-level responsibilities and often focus on strategy and creating conditions for success instead of implementation. When executive sponsors understand how they can be most beneficial to a project and offer the right support; it can make the difference in the project's overall success.
Many senior executives remain unsure of what it means to be an executive sponsor and how they are supposed to enhance project outcomes. The goal of this couse will be to provide clarity into the executive sponsors role and how they can help increase project success.
Importance of Sponsor Training and Development
The type of training and development executive sponsors receive also makes a difference. Mentoring and coaching by others that have experience to share are proven to have better impact on project outcomes, according to PMI. Let us help you guide your leaders to become sponsors that are proficient in guiding a team; while letting them lead the initiative.
