A Guiding Framework for Project Sponsors

GAPPS has released a new guide for project sponsors which was finalised and approved at a recent thought leadership forum in the UK.

The framework contains 34 performance criteria within 10 elements  and three major areas of responsibility in which project sponsors should be competent: taking accountability for the project; supporting the project manager; and, supporting the project.

This new guide for project sponsors was finalised and approved at a recent thought leadership forum in the UK by GAPPS, the independent catalyst for global project standards.

GAPPS would like to thank our reviewers who helped build this invaluable tool.
