Team Charter Template: Set Your Team Up For Success

Most of the Change Management work I do is centered around strategic projects.  These projects always result in some change to the organization which is why I get involved.  A reorganization of roles and responsibilities.  A new system.  A new business process.  These projects also have teams tied to them and, in most cases, these teams cross functions, business units or both.

If I’ve worked with a client in the past, they will call me in to help setup the team and run the team kickoff meetings.  In other cases, I get involved with clients at a point that teams are starting to struggle to deliver on the project.  In almost every case, I ask to see the team charter for the project team.  Sometimes a charter is in place and sometimes it is not.  I’d say it’s about 50/50 in my experience.

I want you and your teams to start off on the right foot so I thought I’d provide you with a template for creating your own Team Charter.  Keep in mind that the purpose of a Team Charter is to:
- Focus team work around clearly understood goals,
- Provide a roadmap for working together,
- Provide a contract between senior management and the team, and
- Provide content for communicating the team’s purpose throughout the organization.

Starting your team off with clear goals and purpose is one of the most effective ways to set your project up for success.  I hope you find the template helpful.  It is simple but effective.
