Dimensions for project success enabled by the sponsor-P³M relationship

The PMBOK® Guide – 4th Edition defines core process groups and knowledge areas without stating the value project sponsors and project managers place on these elements for successful project outcomes.There is an implicit assumption that all project management processes carry equal weight in producing successful project outcomes.This study does not deny the importance of the process standards and process areas but shows that practitioner experiences demonstrate clusters of project management description processes (PMDP) are defined and utilized differently as they relate to successful project outcomes.The purpose of this study is to define which project management skills defined by the Project Management Institute are perceived as more directly related to project success through the relationship and influences between the project manager and her or his sponsor.This study looks at PMDP through the lens of project sponsor reliance on the project manager to manage these processes.
