I am looking for a good book on project organisation: I was told that the project consists of (a) a project team, with a project manager, an IT coordinator and a business coordinator and (b) A project steering committee with a project sponsor, the project manager and a project owner. These are all roles, but how do we know who is the project sponsor ? Who is the project owner, are they the same ?
Are there books on these topics ? Guidelines ? Best practises ?
@CodeGnome: if the answers can be given without referring to a book then it would be great: who is the project sponsor? The finance department? Who is the project owner?
@CodeGnome: I am head of a department that wants to build a database. The database will be fed by data collected from monthly surveys organised by my department. The answers will be loaded in that database. The database will be used by at least four other departments. I assume the me, head of the department that will keep the database, I am owner. But who is the sponsor?
