Management Concepts Press is proud to announce the publication of Strategies For Project Sponsorship, by Vicki James, Ron Rosenhead, and Peter Taylor.
The Project sponsor is critical to project success, yet it is a role that is often assigned to a member of an organization with little knowledge or training in project management practices. This creates challenges, not only for the sponsor but for the project manager. The organization suffers too if key members of the project team are not fully utilized.
In this book, the authors address this challenge from all three vantage points—that of the project manager, the project sponsor, and the organization.
From defining the roles and responsibilities of the project sponsor to suggesting specific practices that maximize the working relationship between the sponsor and project manager, this book is the ultimate guide to project sponsorship. Examples from real-world sponsor experiences, as well as tips, techniques, and tools, enhance its applicability and practicality.
Vicki James has spent more than a decade in the public sector successfully delivering projects to support government operations.
Ron Rosenhead has more than 25 years’ experience as a trainer and consultant, most recently specializing in helping organizations ensure project success.
Peter Taylor is a PMO coach and speaks internationally on project management topics.
The book is available now through your local book store or directly from Management Concepts Press at http://www.ManagementConceptsPress.com. Please contact Jared Stearns at 703-270-4062 for a review copy.
