This course is designed for Program Managers, Senior Managers, Project Sponsors and Quality Managers.


In an increasingly fast moving and complex world, swift and prudent decision making as it relates to projects and programs is critical for success. Project governance – the roles, responsibilities, decision making processes and standard guidance given to project managers and their teams is at the heart of this critical governance role. Project sponsors, as the leaders of this project governance process, must be aware of their responsibilities and be willing to dedicate time to the sponsorship process. This workshop ensures that governance efforts are efficient, effective and allows the executive sponsor to support their projects without being burdened by them.
This is NOT a standard course – instead it is a workshop designed to work with management to structure, plan and install a governance and sponsorship process tailored to the individual needs and culture of each client. Using industry best practices, Mindavation consultants will facilitate and create appropriate governance processes that are pragmatic and accompanied by a transition & implementation plan. Existing company culture, policies, procedures and controls will be considered to ensure a holistic approach to governance applied.
