Project Charter

By Oliver F. Lehmann

The Project Charter, or Project Definition, is a statement of the scope, objectives and participants in a project. It provides a preliminary delineation of roles and responsibilities, outlines the project objectives, identifies the main stakeholders, and defines the authority of the project manager. It serves as a reference of authority for the future of the project.

The purpose of the project charter is to document:

  • Reasons for undertaking the project
  • Objectives and constraints of the project
  • Directions concerning the solution
  • Identities of the main stakeholders
