PMP Exam Prep Question of the Week

According to the PMI, which of the following is not a human resource role of the project sponsor?

  1. Set priorities between projects in the portfolio
  2. Issue the project charter, if sponsor is external to the project
  3. Formally accept the product of the project
  4. Provide financial resources for the project

The correct answer is 1.

Setting priorities between projects in the portfolio is not a human resource role of the project sponsor because it is a function of portfolio management and not project management. It would typically be performed by senior leadership. Although sponsors are often in senior leadership positions, that is not always true. All of the other answers are common sponsor roles.
