Closing the Charter Gap

by Mark Zessin
September 14, 2022 | 59:48 | Views: 8,353 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.61 / 5

As certified PMPs, one of our hallmarks is to be able to control scope, manage the schedule, and deliver project requirements on budget. But it is far too often that, although a project is successful in meeting scope, its projected benefits are lacking. The gap between charter and scope can result in significant unforeseen covert constraints to project impact. This leads to a variety of impact issues, ranging from the need for additional sub projects, funding, and configuration change to project management creditability and stakeholder management drama. Closing the Charter Gap is the validation of requirements against benefits and the business case to ensure that the end-product will deliver the financial, service, and cultural result it was envisioned to achieve.

deliverable
by Andy Jordan

This template provides a framework to communicate your project's purpose (with some supporting information) to the project team. It should be completed as soon as the project is approved and should be led by the sponsor. It will require input from multiple stakeholders (including the project manager), and should be walked through with the team as part of project initiation.

The Triple Constraint, 2022 Style

by Andy Jordan

The growth of agile and the increasing pace of all forms of project delivery have meant that the triple constraint is no longer the thing we all have to tattoo on our brains.
