The main purpose of a project charter is to have consensus around project objectives, activities, schedule, potential risks, and budget. A project manager will develop the charter to start the project and get approval from a project sponsor. Having a project charter will help to keep you organized and on track to implement the project management process that will lead to a successful project. The project charter helps to make sure anyone involved understands the project through the scope, objectives, deliverables and more. This project will lead you through the development of a project charter using Microsoft Word.
