Instructions for Completing the Charter

Purpose and Responsibilities

➢ This form is used during the define phase of a project to get initial alignment and agreement on why the project is being initiated and what it will produce. ➢ The sponsor and the project manager should work together to get this charter form filled out. Involve as much of the core project team as possible to get their buy-in. ➢ The charter is not a replacement for a project plan. Keep it at a higher level of detail; just detailed enough to make a decision at the next gate on whether it is worth investing in detailed planning for the project. ➢ The completed form should be no longer than 2 – 3 pages. The entire define phase should be short, such as several weeks for many projects at a typical company.
