It is quite common for consultants and trainers in the area of project management to claim they have a way to deliver a project on time and on budget. Ever some suppliers of PRINCE2 training will advertise with this promise.

Delivering on time and on budget is not a goal. Even worse: this attitude will almost certainly make a project fail.

The term "Sponsor" is used in many approaches to Project Management, Programme Management and Change Management. Not just in the theoretical approaches describing Best Practices or Common Practices, but also in real life a Sponsor is often mentioned as a key role.

This is a destructive practice. A Sponsor is a dangerous role; the term should not be used anymore. Sponsors are main threats to any form of change.
