What Is a Project Sponsor?

Question: What is a project Sponsor and does it change Access?

 

Answer:

The Project Sponsor is mainly for notification purposes. The Sponsor is usually a manager, executive or stakeholder that needs to know what is happening with the project, but not necessarily assigned any work.  The Sponsor does not gain any additional access to the project, but is added to the notifications of the project.  

In some cases the Project Manager will also be the Sponsor.
