Create a project charter

Course Description

In order to launch, run and deliver a successful project, one key ingredient is needed right at the beginning – A Project Charter. But not just any old Project Charter, a fantastic Project Charter!

Building a Project Charter is not an easy task. There are a range of complexities that need to be taken into consideration when it comes to building one, a process to follow and a number of steps you need to complete. Many projects I have worked in over the years have a “Project Charter”, but the project still fails because the charter is missing key parts, is too complicated or just is not focused enough. Many people build a charter to say they have one, and leave it to fester and not deliver its true potential.

In my experience, those projects that are launched with a solid Project Charter, covering all the necessary steps are the ones that truly deliver.

In this course, we will look at:

  • What is a Project Charter?
  • The purpose and importance of a Project Charter.
  • How to build a Project Charter.
  • A step by step breakdown of all of the key aspects of a charter and how to complete them.

We will use a scenario to walk through this process, enabling you to see exactly how you could deploy your own project idea into a Project Charter as soon as you have completed the course!
