Project Charter Template

The Project Charter is developed during the initiation phase to formally authorize a project. The Project Charter Template provides a method for communicating the scope, objectives, and overall approach for a project to all key project stakeholder audiences. A project manager can use the project charter template for initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and assessing the overall performance of the project.
