The president of the company has requested you to handle a large new project that links to the company’s number-one strategic priority. As a result, you will need to transition one of your other projects to another project manager.

The team charter is also referred to as the team’s social contract. In addition to ground rules, this agreement captures team values, working agreements, and group norms. Ideally, the team formulates this together.
