Successful change initiatives require effective sponsorship. This may be in the form of an official Senior Responsible Officer, project/programme sponsor or senior executive accountable for the definition and realisation of business benefits. Effective sponsors also act as a key support to teams and a vital point of escalation to remove organisational obstacles.

At The Project Academy we develop sponsor capability through our development programmes, supported by our bespoke 360 Degree sponsor assessment. Based on a combination of APM standards and our own expertise, we have developed a robust assessment enabling sponsors to gain feedback from various stakeholders, leading to improved self-awareness, recognition of strengths and identification of blind spots. Hosted via our online systems, sponsors gain crucial visibility of behaviours and skills that drive superior project and change performance.
