A charter is an essential document for defining the scope and purpose of an Executive IT Committee. The committee is an excellent tool to make the business accountable for the IT investment decisions it wants made. This charter outlines:
- Key members
- Agenda items
- Purpose of the committee
- Formal mandate of the committee
Without a charter to control this committee, the IT department could find the rest of the enterprise is overly involved in day-to-day IT operations, or not involved enough in IT decision making.
