What is Agile Charters

The Agile Charter is the first and a must-have document for an Agile project. It authorizes the project and the team. Stakeholders come together to reach a common understanding of the product, vision, mission, and goals. Agile charters are broad and high-level. Agile charters define:
  • What the project is about
  • Why are we doing this project?
  • Who will be involved or impacted?
  • When will the project start and end?
  • Where the project will take place
  • How the goals of the project will be achieved
