Most failed projects are doomed before they start. Runaway scope creep, slippage, waste – these and other common project management pitfalls can be mitigated by proper planning and asking the right questions at the start of a project.
The goal of the “Project Charter Creation Template” is to resolve important questions, such as high-level scope, responsibilities, and budgeting, before the project begins. Preparing for contingencies beforehand saves time and money that would otherwise be spent trying to fight fires during the course of the project. Setting constraints helps guard against the ever-increasing requirements that doom so many projects to failure.
