"If you are looking for a practical ...book on project sponsorship this is a must have. I am going to use this book in my workshops for project board members and sponsors."--Henry Portman "[A]n engaging read. It was not patronising but supportive; thought provoking and positively reactive. For those who admit that they might need to brush up on their project sponsorship skills it could be a little goldmine. Even project managers could benefit from seeing things from a slightly different perspective too." --Darren Ingram "Autamme.com "
