The Project Charter is an official, basic document that outlines a process improvement project. It is the first step in a Lean Six Sigma project, and therefore takes place in the Define phase of DMAIC. However, it can be periodically reviewed, refined, and revised throughout the project.
The elements of a Project Charter can vary, but they generally include the Business Case, Problem Statement, Goal Statement, Team Members/Roles, and Constraints/Boundaries, and Project Scope.
