Initiation Project Document?
IBM World Wide Project...
I am not sure that the reference to "IBM World Wide Project Management Methodology" is relevant. Thoughts? Mwfnwa 12:46, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Merging with Terms of Reference
I would feel a difference between Project charter as possibly internal document of a body which wants to execute the project, Terms of reference I would see as document for external use out of business unit either for vendors or for other units within e.g. a corporation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:07, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
In my opinion, the Project Charter term is well-known in the practice, so I would keep it. Alex of Bcn. Alex from Cynertia Consulting, 4-Feb-2009. —Preceding undated comment was added at 11:21, 4 February 2009 (UTC).
This is a definite a stand alone, this document is worthy of a separate page and would make wiki incomplete without it. Bnaur 15:07, 13 April 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk)
Without question, the project charter should be a standalone article with a references to and from the terms of reference. As it has it's own separate function according to the PMI. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 16:31, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
What about vice-versa?
The project charter is generally considered as a high level document to provide the audience with a one page summary of the project outline and roles and responsibilities. Th document will often be circulated as a standalone document to provide a focus during project inception i.e. before user requirements detailing project outlines and the like are drafted. The information maybe repeated in the terms of reference section of a specific project documention however will be expanded to provide greater detail of R&R etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:21, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
This is most definitely stand-along and in fact, much more could be said about the charter. I am in favor of not merging. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scottkastner (talk • contribs) 20:19, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
I tend to agree that the Project Charter is a different document than the Terms of Reference. The Project Charter is meant to be a high level overview (one-pager) of the project. Term of Reference are typically more detailed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rgephart (talk • contribs) 21:19, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
A project charter is industry specific to projects. A terms of reference has a much wider application. In goverment reviews and similar it has significant polictical meaning, and is used in boards of inquiry, crown reviews and similar and is a critical element of parlimentary privildge.
Is the project Charter TOR?
I do not think so, Project charter is part of project management and phases, but TOR is part of RFP, maybe they have the same chapters but in different perspectives
