Please respond to the following questions: Your company has assigned one of its vice presidents to function as your project sponsor. Unfortunately, your sponsor refuses to make any critical decisions, always "passing the buck" back to you. What should you do? What are your alternatives and the pros and cons of each? Why might an executive sponsor act in this manner? A project sponsor is an essential component of a project. They are involved with the project when it was being conceived to its completion. They are also responsible for making sure the funding is in place for the project and all the required resources for the project are available. A project sponsor is one level above the project manager, and they drive the project forward by providing their guidance and are also involved in taking many key decisions. They communicate with external stakeholders, approve project management plans, create the project charter and are accountable for the successful completion of the project.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
