How to Create a Project Charter Certification Course

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!

“This is a good course for those who have no to very basic background on process improvement. The content is just right, not too overwhelming for me. The topics are discussed properly. I appreciate the examples given which make each topic easier to understand.”
From Dallas, USA
“In my position, everyone suddenly want this kind of RCA, but no one really knew how to do it. It was simple but I felt I was doing it wrong. This course broke it down to the simple steps it is supposed to be to complete. Easy to follow and great examples.”
From Norway
“This course adds a lot more insight to the tool than you get from a simple template. I now know how to sell usage of the tool across my business - something I have really struggled with.”

From Australia
“Truly brilliant. A great flow, a really knowledgeable instructor and great resources. I have had some trouble understanding the delivery of Lean, purpose and method - now I feel so much more confident. Thank you Robert.”
From London, UK
“An absolutely amazing course. It has a clear structure and as the slides are present I do not have to make notes. Also - all of the important definitions are being accompanied by demonstrations in practice of the tool by which I could understand the true meaning of them. The way the course is presented is nice to follow, language is impeccable and the speed is not to fast. Usually in other courses from Udemy I can see a definition of a problem directly followed by example with a lot of fluff, but those extra unneeded false interactions with learners make the course only longer and makes me usually loose my focus. In this course I did not experience it at all. It was to the point and I have actually learned something that I can directly use in my work. Thank you! PS I will for sure follow the other courses of the instructor!”
