The quality improvement project charter provides a rationale and roadmap for the team’s improvement work that can be used to clarify thinking about what needs to be done and why. The charter helps keep the focus on a specific opportunity or problem and identifies the members of the improvement team.
This tool provides a template for developing an improvement project charter and includes an example of a completed charter.
