Team Charter

What is Team Charter

A team charter is a document that outlines the purpose, goals, roles, responsibilities, and ground rules for a team. It is a tool used to define and align the team around a shared vision and to establish a common understanding of the team's purpose and objectives.

The purpose of a team charter is to provide a clear and concise framework for the team to follow as it works towards its goals. It serves as a reference point for team members and can help to guide decision-making and resolve conflicts within the team.
