A project charter serves several important functions. It organizes the project so that you can make efficient and effective resource allocation decisions. It also communicates important details on the project purpose, scope definition, and the project parameters. This template is designed to help you build a SOF project charter in a timely manner.
This template includes the following sections:
- Project overview, such as project title, background and objectives
- Scope definition, such as scope, milestones and key deliverables
- Project parameters, such as stakeholders, roles and responsibilities, and budget
- Project risks, assumptions, and constraints
It is also important to ensure that your project plan does not disrupt business, to be realistic about resources, and to always be prepared for unexpected issues.
