What is a Project Charter?
A Project Charter is a document which outlines the purpose of the project, the way the project will be structured and how it will be successfully implemented. It describes the project:
- Vision, objectives, scope and deliverables (i.e. what we have to achieve)
- Stakeholders, roles and responsibilities (i.e. who will take part in it)
- Resource, financial and quality plans (i.e. how it will be undertaken).
The Project Charter may also be referred to as a “Terms of Reference (TOR)” or “Project Definition Report (PDR)”.
When do I use a Project Charter?
The Project Charter is usually presented by Senior Management within the business to an identified Business Sponsor. It is completed after the Business Case and Feasibility Study have been approved but before the Project Team is formally appointed.
