Chapter 2. Understanding Project Initiat... > The Project Charter and Its Purpose

The Project Charter and Its Purpose

The project initiation process group consists of two processes. The first process is the development of the project charter. The second process, developing the preliminary project scope statement, is discussed in a later section. The project charter is the initial document that describes the project at a high level and formally authorizes the project. PMI requires that a project charter be created and accepted before a project is considered official. As a PMP, you will be required to insist on a project charter before proceeding in the role of project manager.

The PMBOK requires a project charter for every project. The lack of a project charter is a project stopper.
