|12 Project Management Principles: #9 - Involve Sponsors|
PROJECT MANAGERS MUST insist that project sponsors and stakeholders must be active participants, not passive customers.
Sponsors and stakeholders should rightfully demand the authority to approve project deliverables, either in whole or in part. Project Managers should also demand sponsors and stakeholders be active participants in the early stages of the project (helping to define deliverables), to complete reviews of interim deliverables in a timely fashion (keeping the project moving), and to help expedite the project manager's access to company resources, knowledge, suppliers, essential documentation, etc.
