A lack of executive support is the second leading cause of project failure.
Gaining executive support and understanding what is needed to successfully accomplish a project can be difficult to attain. Without this critical partnership in place, the chances of your project reaching a successful conclusion are dramatically lower.
Having high level executive support in place provides:
- The ability to reallocate people and budgets.
- A resource to mediate between key stakeholders.
- Quick conflict resolution.
- Representation at the executive level for appropriate attention and resources.
Executive backing is major component of successful project management. Earning this support begins with the way you interact and present project updates to your executive level.
