Samples of completed team charters including an example of what is unacceptable (the first example). Notice that the format is flexible (a simple 1-3 page Word document) but the content is similar (covering the basic topics discussed here).

REMEMBER: The primary goal of the charter is to establish CLEAR & TANGIBLE team expectations. It should be direct, simple, and to the point. If it's not clear, or if it sounds "fluffy," dig deeper.
