Body Language for Presentations

By With No comments:
As we all know, good communication skill is one of the most important characteristics of a successful project manager. Project manager and the project management team is required to communicate day in day out to various stakeholders involved in the project. Good communication is a prerequisite for the success of any project. But, when we refer to communication, its not only verbal or written; it also includes your body language. When you are giving a presentation, your body language conveys much more than the words from your mouth.

With that introduction on the importance of communication for a project manager, I would like you to take a look at the following video. I found this video on "Body Language for Presentations" in Youtube. Its interesting and I thought this video would be useful for you. So, see this video and prepare yourself before you go for your next presentation on your project; may be to your customer, senior management or to other stakeholders.

Project Charter

By With 2 comments:
What is a Project Charter?
  • Project Charter is a document that formally authorizes the commencement of a project or a phase.
  • Project Charter authorizes the project manager to obtain, negotiate and deploy organizational resources to project activities.
  • PMBOK recommends that the project manager be identified and assigned as early as possible in the project, prior to the start of planning, and preferably while the project charter is being developed.
  • It is also recommended that the project manager be involved in the development of the project charter. But, it should be noted that even though the project manager/ the project management team may help in preparing the Project Charter, the approval and funding should always be external to the project boundaries. Projects are generally authorized by someone external to the project such as the Project Management Office (PMO), project sponsor or someone from the senior management.
  • Project Charter documents the initial requirements that addresses the stakeholders' needs and expectations

Inputs to the development of a Project Charter
The following are the necessary inputs for the development of a project charter:
  1. Project Statement of Work (SOW)
  2. Business Case
  3. Contract
  4. Enterprise Environmental Factors
  5. Organizational Process Assets
