Why is the Charter important?
A project charter formally recognizes the existence of the project. It comes in many sizes with several elements.
Charters can take many forms, but at a minimum it should contain a scope statement and target dates and cost, and establish the authority of the project manager. Without this document, it could be very difficult to get any decision made or run a successful project.
Using the Charter
You may have heard of the term “scope creep.” This term means that the scope of the project continues to grow or new items are introduced. Having a proper project charter will allow you to determine whether the requested item is in scope or if it requires a change request.
