Project Leadership

=mc Systems Model

Embed effective project governance with confidence

Distinct from project managers who deliver projects, it’s the role of the project sponsor to ensure those projects are strategically aligned, with clear lines of accountability and active decision-making. This tailored programme – available in-house only – introduces the tools and techniques for effective project oversight. How the programme is designed depends on your needs and the needs of your organisation. For example, we can work with the senior team to embed good project governance and project portfolio management. We can help you better understand your role in project accountability and show you how you can enable great project management.

Who is the programme for? 

This intensive one or two day programme is for senior managers – heads of department or directors – who act as sponsors for organisational projects.

  • “The programme gave us a better understanding of how and where the role of project leader fits in for us as senior managers and the steps we can take to oversee things more effectively. Following the programme I can already see a change amongst my colleagues to try something different and to be more accountable.”

    Jayne Grier, Head: Organisational Change & People, International HIV/AIDS Alliance
