project charter includes

Sat Dec 04, 2021 3:01 pm

As current manager of a project (which is in planning phase) has moved to a different city, you have been asked to take over. You are in the process of taking over from the incumbent project manager, and as your starting point going through project charter with him. What can potentially not be part of project charter?
a- Baseline budget
b- Summary milestone schedule
c- Stakeholders list
d- Project approval requirements

As per the source answer is a but I think answer should be c - Stakehodler list.

As per the document https://www.pmi.org/learning/library/ch ... oject-7473 : "A charter at the very start of a project, the charter's author must create it based on only partial information. The PMBOK® Guide recommends including “requirements,” “schedule,” and “budget,” but it will be impossible to give detailed versions of any of these pieces of information at the very start. Instead, prepare the charter based on the limited information available at the time."

Let's explore what is Baseline?
Baseline. The approved version of a work product that can be changed only through formal change control procedures and is used as a basis for comparison to actual results.
Cost Baseline. The approved version of the time-phased project budget, excluding any management reserves, which can be changed only through formal change control procedures and is used as a basis for comparison to actual results.
Baselines are associated with plans and at this stage what we see is we are not yet talking about Plan.

Project Charter can have
- Cost Estimate
-Stakeholder List (Partial, the detailed List will emerge as we go in Stakeholder Register)
- Key Milestones

I explain project charter as a seed for the project management plan, the project management plan which grow in this seed will be used for future execution.
