Getting Sponsors to Express, Model and Reinforce their commitment to your change is the single most important factor in getting a business change implemented at speed, and Sponsorship remains the primary obstacle to successful implementation. You can immediately use the Sponsor Contracting Template to identify the key actions you need from your Sponsors right now. The template will help you identify:
- What Sponsors need to say to demonstrate they are committed to the change
- What Sponsors must model to show that their actions are aligned with their words
- The secret to successful implementation- what Sponsors are reinforcing in their direct reports
If you get Sponsorship right you are far more likely to achieve benefit realization for your project. The contracting template will help you make that happen.
