Strategies for Project Sponsorship Released!

CoverI am thrilled to announce publication of my first book, Strategies for Project Sponsorship. This was a team effort with Peter Taylor (aka The Lazy Project Manager) and Ron Rosenhead. Published by Management Concepts Press, this book is already making waves in the project management community. Please read on for more information or visit our page at  You can even get a download of our 17 item Project Sponsor Checklist for following the page.

“The project sponsor is critical to project success, yet it is a role that is often assigned to a member of the organization with little knowledge or training in project management practices. In this book, the authors address this challenge from three vantage points – that of the project’s manager, the project sponsor, and the organization.”

What our readers are saying…

“Strategies for Project Sponsorship is a unique blend of practical, step-by-step tools; hard-won wisdom from the PM trenches; and solid, research-based recommendations…This book should be in every project manager’s tool kit and in every project sponsor’s briefcase.”

Michael Greer

Full review…

“SPS is a well written, well structured, waffle free zone, brimming with practical advice for project managers and sponsors alike.  The book covers the entire project life cycle and clearly explains how the roles and responsibilities of the project sponsor should interface with those of the project manager at each stage of the cycle.”

I am thrilled to announce that I, along with Peter Taylor and Ron Rosenhead, have signed on with Management Concepts Press to embark on a new research and writing project, Strategies for Project Sponsorship. The book is at least a year out as we gather our research, write the text, and then work through the publication process.

We are asking for you assistance. Visit the book page at to respond to our survey, share your sponsor story, or both. More information on the project and my fellow authors is also available. Please use the link on the right to join the Campaign for Project Sponsorship to get the latest news and opportunities on the project.
