What’s a team charter?

A team charter defines and tracks the progress of your team's goals, available resources, and constraints. Although teams typically create charters when first working together, these documents are also an invaluable tool when you’re relaunching or assisting an established team.

What's a simple team charter example as it relates to projects?

A simple example of a project charter could be when a group collaborates on creating a new product. The charter might assign relevant employees to the team, define shared goals around the product’s implementation, and detail expectations for how each individual will help achieve these goals.

Is there a team charter template available in Notion?
