Gower author Peter Taylor (also known as The Lazy Project Manager), has been guest blogging for PM Bistro, with a post entitled The Campaign for Real Sponsors:

“Critical to any project’s success is having a good project manager, but after that it is pretty important to have a good project sponsor. However, like the saying goes, ‘you can pick your friends but you can’t pick your relatives.’ The same is true of project sponsors.

Peter goes on to outline the typical project sponsor responsibilities, as well as a look at “The good, the bad, and the confused,”  before making his plea for support and investment for anyone working in this role.

Peter Taylor is author of the forthcoming; Leading Successful PMOs,  How to Build the Best Project Management Office for Your Business published by Gower in November 2011 as well as,The Lazy Project Manager, and The Lazy Winner.
