Project Sponsorship: Winning Strategies for Executive Leaders

Projects are the lifeblood of any organization that wants to grow, improve, and innovate. Unfortunately, too many projects fail, wasting time and money while sinking stock prices and brand loyalty. These failures jeopardize the health of a company and the livelihood of its people.

In Project Sponsorship: Winning Strategies for Executive Leaders, Terri Carbone illustrates how simple shifts in mindset and habits can have a dramatic impact on the success of a project. Drawing on over two decades of experience in project management, Carbone offers compelling storytelling and practical strategies that will challenge and inspire executive sponsors to:

  • cultivate a culture of integrity and accountability in the workplace;
  • create better relationships with their project teams;
  • maximize the usefulness of project-management methodologies;
  • ask the key questions that will lead to fully informed decisions; and
  • think critically to gain new insight into the process of project sponsorship.
