The Project Charter

The project charter

The project charter is a method that steers the efforts of a work team towards business success. It is a document that converts business goals into project management. By grounding the project in the business reality, this document properly and accurately indicates how to efficiently invest all available resources (financial, human and time). The charter includes a Steering committee, a Schedule, a Scope and the Stakeholders.

The project charter helps the stakeholders understand the project’s objectives, scope, deliverables, and necessary resources. This avoids miscommunications or misinterpretations which are all too common when business decision-makers and technical specialists collaborate. As a result, teams can quickly make the right decisions—ones that lead to the achievement of business objectives. Contact us for more information about the project charter.
