I’m talking very candidly about Critical Skills for Project Management today at #SLA2017 in Phoenix. My focus is on what I’ve learned, over 30 years, to be sanity savers for project managers. There are many books, courses, blog posts and presentations on effective project management; these are excellent, and I highly recommend that anyone entering the world of projects seek them out and learn Let’s face it, to keep their sanity project managers need a few tools, specifically a project charter (sometimes called a charge or outline), a RASCI or RACI matrix, and some way to track the project plan, timeline and costs.
Below are the slides, a template you are welcome to consider and edit for a Project Charter, and the ever wonderful RASCI (you can shorten it to a RACI if you want — but do use it.)

RASCI Responsibility Matrix And this links to the RASCI template; below is a jpeg so that you can see if you are interested.
