Your organization has been assigned to manage Mumbai new soccer stadium, its largest construction contract in 40 year history. Because of your 10 year career with the organization, you have been selected to lead the project. Based on rumors you have heard, you expect the project to last over 5 years and to have at least 300 stakeholders from dozen of countries. Performing on schedule is critical. Even though no sponsor has been assigned, you begin work on the project charter. However, your manager tells you there isn’t time to worry about a charter and directs you to begin working on the project plan instead. What should you do now?
a) Be happy to be named the project manager and begin working on the project plan.
b) Develop a project charter on your own but do not worry that you have no sponsor to sign it.
c) Work on developing the project charter and the project plan concurrently.
d) Explain to your manager the risk of proceeding without a project charter.
