“The Charter: Selling Your Project” Available as an On-Line Speech and Class

Alex S. Brown, PMP IPMA-C

This speech was delivered and recorded live for the PMI North America Congress on September 12, 2005. You can hear the speech and see the slides right now. The entire 54-minute speech will play, with slides synchronized to the audio.

Technical Information

The speech is delivered in MP3 format. The entire presentation is about 19 MB and should play smoothly for most Internet connections, even many dial-up connections (anything over 48 kbps). To synchronize the slides, JavaScript must be enabled. It has been tested with both Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, using QuickTime and Windows Media Player plug-ins. The VLC player has some known issues and will not synchronize the sound and slides.

Related Materials

The presentation included a paper that was provided to everyone attending the Congress. This paper is available this site. Project charters are an important topic, and I continued writing about them after the speech. There is now a charter template available for your use, and some sample charters.
