Develop Expedition Charter

Today we held a kick-off meeting of the #Kilimanjaring Project. We did it with accordance to PMBOK#6 because we are considering the test-drive of a new Body of Knowledge as the main value of our startup project. The first process “Develop Project Charter” was the basis of this meeting:

  • The input of this process is the Agreement, which I described in this post facebook.com/groups/7PMSummits/permalink/1118310024979091
  • To implement the process used “Facilitation Techniques”, a special case of which is a Kick-Off Meeting.
  • The Project Charter was issued at the output.

According to the new PMBOK, the Develop Project Charter is the process of developing a document that formally authorizes the existence of a project and provides the project manager with the authority to apply organizational resources to project activities. The role of Project Manager was assigned to Artem Stroganov.

A new project is always a big mass of uncertainty. The kick-off meeting and the project charter allow these uncertainties to be significantly reduced.
