About this Course
As a professional, you’re deeply invested in the projects you work on, and you might have ideas that can have a positive impact on your organization. But, how can you convince others to buy into your vision?
A project charter is a document that serves at the first step in turning your ideas into reality. It describes your opportunity; shares your vision; presents a roadmap; identifies objectives, resources, and risks; and compellingly demonstrates the value and feasibility of your project.
Project management is a desirable skill that shows value in nearly every modern organization. Computerworld’s 2015 survey of IT recruiters identified project management as the second most sought-after professional skill, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects job growth for IT managers to grow 15% from 2012 to 2022. The ability to create a clear and effective project charter is a key component in being a skilled project manager.
