I was looking at my web site recently – doing a bit of tidying up and came across an article I posted in March 2005 called Project management Screw Up 5 – We didn’t have the right sponsorship by Lonnie Pacelli.
He goes into some detail about the need for there to be a project sponsor. He says the following:
“…..every successful project always had an engaged project sponsor.”
Over the years Project Agency has worked with many organisations saying effectively the same thing to many of our clients.
Posted on the web site in 2005 and the issue is as current as ever i.e. we need more senior managers to play their role as project sponsors.
