Create a Project Charter with Google Docs

Coursera Project Network via Coursera

Overview

Have you been assigned to manage a project and don’t know how to start capturing all the pertinent information into a succinct and crisp format?

By the end of this project, you will create a master and living document, containing important information that you and stakeholders can refer back to as your project develops.

A Project Charter is a living document that displays core information of a project, such as the project's name, sponsors, problem and goal statements, scope, benefits, and timeline. It is used typically in Lean Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) methodology at the inception of the project, and is consistently referred back to throughout the project’s life, and thereafter.

With minimal software skills, you will be able to categorize this information into a document using a simple table structure. This course will include beginner level skills using Google Docs. Creating a logically organized Project Charter is a great way to not only summarize all the moving parts of your project into one handy document but also to measure your project's success.

    This class is straight to the point and at the end of it, you will produce a project charter document. I did have to stop the video instruction to complete the formatting but I was complete within an hour. Very much worth the time and effort.
