Increasingly, governments turn to public-private partnerships to execute multi-million dollar missions and achieve public goals. Learn about this changing landscape that presents project managers in both the public and private sectors with new challenges ranging from standing up new models of organization and shared governance to performance metrics, accountability, and risk.

Having trouble getting your sponsor to focus on your project? Did their engagement end when the charter was signed? What!? They didn’t even read the charter? If you want to improve your sponsor relationship and get exactly what you need from them to keep you project moving forward, this presentation was built for you. Unfortunately, most sponsors don’t understand what is expected of them. Why would they? We haven’t told them, yet! We start with a sponsor assessment to help you evaluate the kind of sponsor you have for your project. That is key to understanding what comes next.

Then, we apply a sponsor management process and various techniques and tools to help you focus your sponsor on precisely what they need to know, help them understand what is expected of them throughout the project lifecycle, and how they can support you through the process of managing a
project.

Happy and engaged sponsor = happy project manager! Join us if you want to learn the secrets to sponsor engagement and how to master the most critical component of any change success.
