Publisher: Project Management Institute, Inc.
Year Published: 2017 Edition: 6th ISBN: 13: 9781628251845
Question 2: The PMBOK® Guide provides a framework for the project charter; what is somewhat unfortunate is that most organizations have independently developed their own ideas of what should be included in a project charter (if they create one in the first place). Describe and discuss the importance of the initiating process group and the project charter. Discuss the importance of the project charter and its relevance to successfully managing a project. Does your organization (or an organization with which you are familiar) have a formal project initiation process and does it use a project charter? Are their projects generally successful (on time, on budget, at the scope and quality expected)? Why or Why not?
Your initial submission should be approximately 550-650 words. Your summary should include APA 6.0 compliant in-text citations and references.
