The two most common reasons for project failure in organizations are lack of senior management support and poor or ever changing requirements. Why do you think this is? Too often organizations jump right into delivering on a project without the appropriate level of thought around the actual business need or the problem the project is going to solve.

If you've been a project manager for a while, you also understand that projects cause change in an organization and many times we don't truly think about what that change means to all the stakeholders.

This month, we explore the value of a project charter and how to develop one that is simple and can be agreed upon by all stakeholders. Putting together the charter is the easy part. The challenge comes in creating consensus on the project solution and deliverables.

In this webinar, we will give you the skills to create a meaningful charter. We invite anyone to submit their charters to for review. #TheCharterCreep
