This is where the rubber hits the road. As you prepare to implement your strategy, you will need to evaluate your staff capacity, clarify roles and responsibilities, draft a workplan and budget, use good project management principles to guide your work, and continue to build your stakeholders’ engagement.
The charter clarifies roles and responsibilities within the project team, including who has decision making authority. Where the project is being implemented via a partnership, the charter should include partners and their roles. Charters also have sponsors. Final authority for the direction of the project rests with the project sponsors.
