About the Course

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 coarse gave me a better prospective on how to use a Project Charter instead of my Project Outline in Planning Presentations. This methodology give a better visual prospective and a better presentation flow start to finish.

in this course we are taught what is meant by a project charter, a project charter is a high-level document that states and explains the existence of a project. This document contains important information that includes a brief description of a project to be executed. The Project Charter is made in the Initiating process and also teaches how to use it, the host also explains quite clearly all the material that has been given

This was very simple to use, and very easy to follow. The instcutor provided very helpful tips. I wish I learned a little more about some of the components, but I like that she called out what the process is called which allows for me to do a deeper dive at a later date. Over all, this was great! I love building it myself versus having a template handed to me.

The Project Charter is a course organized by the Coursera Project Network. This course discusses a way how to make a plan for a project to find and explore what information needs to be prepared in the form of a document. This course also teaches how to compose a complete and concise project requirements document using Google Docs

Create a project charter with google docs is very interesting to learn because this course has material that is rarely exposed on website pages, so I have difficulty when I want to take a quiz and don't get a score of 100. However, I still get a certificate when I meet the graduation criteria.

I think this course is already good and has portions that are close to perfect. However, there are still shortcomings that this course has, including the use of languages that do not use Indonesian, tutorials on how to fill out answers, questions in questions that are still unclear about the material provided. Still difficult to understand, still ambiguous, the discussion is still incomplete.
