Basic Project Charter
This Project Charter walkthrough covers fundamentals, such as:
- general and specific objectives
- defining constraints and assumptions
- project organization
- project manager(s)
- user representatives
- technical lead
- as well as approaches to staffing, budget, communications, planning, tracking, change control, system and document access, project plans and support requirements.
What will I get out of this?
This example will give you a basic, solid, structure for building a Project Charter. The sample text will give you a jump start on how to articulate each point in a clear and concise way.

The Charter example is too vague and features too many items: The list of objectives gives examples of things, but not objectives. "Reporting" is a thing to do, but no objective, for example.
My expectation towards a project charter is to tell me in a one-pager who will do what when, how and at which price, whereas the what can be rough - the charter is not there to judge the project but to give direction and facilitate portfolio management.
