Project Sponsors are busy individuals. They have their day job, leadership responsibilities and Project governance duties. As a Project Sponsor, you may have to make decisions with minimal information. Further, you ensure that the Project team is empowered and well supported. In addition, you may have to deal with the problems related to vendors, resources, and changes in priorities.
All in all, leading digital initiatives can be very challenging work.
To be successful, there is one thing that the Project Sponsor should never forget!
That is, understanding of ‘Why’!
Why are we executing the project? What is the objective of the project?
The project objective should be at the forefront of your every decision and problem.
You can ensure your success by visualising the end goal and project objective. So, ensure that you have a clear definition of the project objective. Then, evaluate every decision and solution option in light of the Project objective. The Project objective will keep you laser-focused on the project’s ultimate goal.
