Project Charter

Postby nagarwal Sun Jul 27, 2014 11:31 am

Who is responsible for deciding the approval or rejection of changes to the Project Charter?
1) Project Manager
2) Project Sponsor
3) Senior Execs
4) Stakeholders

Why not project manager? Even the Project manager can author the charter and he comes on board while the charter is being prepared.

Only the Project Sponsor can changes to Approve or Reject because he funds the project.

Went through the video and the blog. Agreed that the project charter ideally should not change in most cases but it can change at times (though rare). If it's supposed to be changed then who make the change - Sponsor or the Project Manager. Final thoughts?

Change can be recommended by either of them but ultimate authority to approve project charter (new one) is sponsor
