Project Charters

Project Charters are an important project management document that should be created for all projects of moderate or higher complexity. Low complexity projects may need to have a project charter created for them if they have significant scope, cost, risks, assumptions, constraints, or resource requirements associated with the project.


One of the main purposes of a project charter is to ensure that expectations are properly set between a project’s sponsor and the team that is planning and managing the project. A project charter accomplishes this by documenting the mission and goals of the project, and how the project aligns with the organization’s overall strategy and targeted outcomes.  It also documents a project’s scope, deliverables, assumptions, constraints, interdependencies, timeline, and required resources.
