The Project Charter, the Project Scope Statement, and the Priority Matrix are the three documents that set your project in motion, yet they are the most overlooked and underutilized documents in project management.
The Project Charter is your license to do business. It initiates the project for the project manager and provides the level of authority required to gather both consumable and non-consumable project resources. It is the document that gives approval for the project to proceed, based on the information it contains. The Charter and Project Scope Statement together are communication tools that provide the reader with a good grasp of what the project is about and answers the questions: What, why, how, who, when and how much.
The Priority Matrix is a simple but powerful form that requires the project sponsors and stakeholders to agree upon the relative priorities of each of the three project constraints and to indicate any specific measurements that are associated with them. This tool is crucial to making decisions throughout the life of the project. Project Managers use this tool at the very beginning of the project to determine these priorities to guide corrective actions taken throughout the life of the project.
This webinar will explain the role of each document in the project management process and their importance to the project manager in the execution of his/her responsibilities.
