This course will provide learners with all the skills, knowledge and techniques required to set up, manage and review a project. This will range from outlining and analysing the life-cycle of a project - including acquiring sponsorship - to project governance, and the early stages of project development. Later sections will outline the management stages of a project, including skills, techniques and resources; the risks associated with projects and project management; and finally, the process by which one can review the success of a project will be outlined.
This article explains concisely how project sponsorship relates to and differs from project management, and also defines and gives examples of typical responsibilities and activities within both the project sponsorship and project management roles. Project sponsorship is linked very strongly with principles of leadership, and is improved by awareness of different leadership theories, styles, models, etc. Project sponsorship is also closely connected with delegating responsibility and related techniques.
