Congratulations on completing your project charter!
In this activity, you created a professional looking document that communicates the purpose,goals, and major details of a project you are managing or would like to manage.
Building a charter for your project gave you the opportunity to learn and practice someimportant project management skills.
You defined the purpose of your project and figured out the problem it will solve.
You set and refined your goals.
You identified key people involved with your project in order to define roles and responsibilities.
And you added other important details to your project charter, which provides a strongframework for planning how the project work will get done.
You researched and identified potential problems that could put your timelines, budget, oroverall project success at risk.
You used digital skills to make a professional, easy-to-read document that clearly organizesand communicates the most important details about your project.
It allows anyone interested in your project to understand, support, and approve your work.
You could present this same information by writing several paragraphs in a documentor even an email, but your project team would spend a lot of time and energy reading throughthe text to find the details they want to know.
Organizing details in a document using lists, tables, text formatting, and section headersare just a few ways to present information in a clear, concise way that a reader canquickly understand.
Digital skills can help you in any job or personal project that requires you to communicateand organize detailed information.
