An actively engaged executive sponsor is the top driver of projects meeting their original goals and business intent, and, yet there are still too few project sponsors that actually engage and understand the status of their projects. I’d go so far as to say that most project sponsors would probably not even miss the project status reports if you stopped sending them today! The time is now, to stop and question why the project status report, in its current format, completed as an administrative tick-box exercise is doing little to effectively engage our most crucial stakeholder.
Join us for our next event where Dirk le Roux, with years of experience in the role of project sponsor and senior business executive will share his perspective on what sponsors really want to hear when it comes to reporting project status! He will explore a novel reporting technique called SBAR (Situation Background Assessment Recommendation) by way of practical observations and insights that will help you to:
- Equip your project managers with a new skill to communicate what really matters to their project sponsors
- Move project managers away from delivering irrelevant project status reports to telling a compelling story
- Adopt a reporting technique that changes the conversation, and as a result the relationship between the project manager, sponsor, owner and other key project stakeholders
