What are the automated and visual management tools required for developing a Project Charter? How these are related with PMIS?

Muthukrishnan -

A project charter doesn't need to be more than a page or two so I don't know that you'd need any automation or visual management tools. The key is having the right people in the room to pull together the information and the approval of the sponsor or other key decision makers once the charter is produced.

A PMIS is a system for managing all the information related to a project so I wouldn't necessarily see any direct connection with the charter other than the possibility that the final approved charter is one of the many project documents which might be stored in the PMIS.

Noted. Regarding this PMIS, if I am not wrong, it is likely that these are managed by some software and does this have any connection with the visual management tools or automated tools in order to develop?

I completely agree with Kiron on this.
The project manager with the help of key team members, discuss the content, create the charter, and submit the charter to the sponsor for approval.

KISS,
Keep it simple and (stupid).

Short and clever, I think it is max of 3 pages for normal size project. As long as you cover the top important matters to get it approved by the sponsor.

It is all about formally authorizes the work of the project to begin (or continue) and gives the project manager authority to do his job.

It really depends on the information itself - some might be automatically generated (e.g. forecast based on past performance) and some might be visually rendered whereas other information might purely exist in document form.

Circumstances have forced me to move away from a simple charter to a detailed document that boils down all elements to their nuts and bolts.

My charters are structured like a textbook (and my TOC alone usually takes up two pages!).

I use the charter like a user manual for the project for new/ replacement team members - it saves a lot of time and gets them up to speed quickly.

Yes, if the surroundings were different, I would go for a fairly simple charter.

I guess I should go with simple since this is my first project that I am heading and also trying to implement. Thanks for comments
