The Project Sponsor is typically a member of the business community rather than an IT/IS resource. This is important because the lack of business sponsorship is often a contributing cause of systems implementation failure. The Project Sponsor often initiates the effort, serves as project champion, guides the Project Managers in understanding business priorities, and reports status of the implementation to executive leadership. Once an implementation is complete, the Project Sponsor may also serve as "chief evangelist", bringing word of the successful implementation to other areas within the organization.
