The Project Charter

Are you looking for a project charter template to help you prepare a quick and easy Project Charter for your new project?

Writing the Project Charter – will ensure your project gets off to the right start, with management support and aligned with organisational objectives.

A project charter announces that a new project has begun. The primary purpose of the charter is to formally authorise the project and to demonstrate management support for the project and the project manager.

The act of creating a charter forces senior management to spell out clearly what the project should do, and most importantly, gives management’s stamp of approval for the project. The project charter sets out the nature and scope of the work and management’s expectations for results.
