A01 - Appoint the Sponsor
Note: This is the old version of P3.express. The current version is available here.
The first thing you need to do is to appoint a person as the Sponsor for the project; a senior manager (preferably a board member) who:
- Owns the project outcome
- Funds and resources the project
- Makes high-level decisions for the project
The Project Manager reports to this person.
The amount of time needed from a Sponsor is minimized, as senior managers are usually busy. They should be able to spend 5 to 10 hours per month on the project after the Preparation activities, and up to 30 hours for Preparation.
