Project Management Professional (PMP)® Project Charter and Project Management courses in Ireland.

05 April, 2011

You have just been assigned the position of project manager to a new project. What is the name of the document that formally authorizes the project?
A. The project assignment
B. The project charter
C. The project description
D. The statement of work

As you probably guessed from the title of this blog, the answer is B – the project charter! The project charter will contain the name of the project manager. Exam wise, it is part of the project initiation phase and the Project Management Institute (PMI)® state that a project cannot start without a project charter. Once the shareholders are satisfied, the document can be signed off and the project can get started. These high level requirements must be accurately documented as they will be used to create the Project Scope document.

The project charter should be created by external parties and by the people who are to perform the tasks within it, for example, the project manager in collaboration with the client or sponsor. The project charter is usually a fairly broad document that will not need to be changed too often. A more detailed description of the project will be contained within the scope statement.

We have several 4 day and 2 day PMP® courses scheduled in the upcoming months. For those of you interested in the Dublin based courses, there is a 4 day PMP® Exam preparation course on June 28th, 29th and July 5th, 6th as well as a 2 day course on May 31st and June 1st. A Limerick based 4 day PMP® course is scheduled for May 18th, 19th, 25th and 26th and the 2 day Limerick PMP® course is on June 21st and 22nd. Due to high demand, we have also added a 2 day PMP® Exam preparation course in Cork on June 16th and 17th.

Everything a person needs to obtain Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification will be covered on these courses from the PMP® application process right through to the PMP® certification exam.
