Course-long project charter (wedding plan)

The Charter should: 

  • Follow the format as defined in the Week 2 Readings/Lectures for the “Project Charter ExamplePreview the document” posted;
  • Include your goal or background; why you decided upon this project (charters only have one goal);
  • Include background, objectives, scope, key resources, milestones, costs/budget, and risks;
  • Have at least six items for all of the elements except background and scope.

See Attachment and add to it

Important note: All Projects need a closeout with an evaluation, so be sure to include this in your charter milestones.

This is the second phase of your individual project; you will continue to work on it, add to it, and refine it throughout this course.

Pages 78 – 82, plus lecture/reading will help. Again this must be detailed.
