This document serves as a template for creating a project charter. It provides guidelines for documenting the project statement, business drivers/project background, vision, goal statement, objectives, scope, schedule and cost projection.
The project statement should be a quick overview of the project (15-20 words total). The business drivers/project background detail the reasons for recommending the project, including background information, business problem, etc. The vision is the idealistic view of what business will be like after the project is completed.
