Task Summary
After reading the project case study, use it to develop a 2,000-word Project Charter, describing the
entire project in a short, succinct, and professional document.
Context
Project leadership is about inspiring the project team to do their best from the outset. This requires
a combination of verbal and written communication skills and a range of applied leadership skills.
One of the foundational documents that helps “kick off” a project is the Project Charter. The Project
Charter describes the entire project in a short, succinct, and presentable document that can be
shared with project staff or other stakeholders and aims to commence the project in earnest. The
Project Charter helps to clarify the project context, the project team roles, and the goals of the
project.
Instructions
You will be given a project case study to use in order to develop your Project Charter. Though all
students will receive the same case study, it is expected that each student will think about the
project from their own perspective as an up-and-coming project manager in order to formulate a
unique Project Charter. Use your own style based on your critical thinking of what it means for you
