You have just been selected to lead the largest construction contract in 40 year history. 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. 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) Begin working on the project plan.
b) Developing a project charter on your own but do not worry that you have no sponsor to sign it.
c) Developing the project charter and the project plan concurrently.
d) Explaining to your manager the risk of proceeding without a project charter.
