Letter template announcing the appointment of a project manager to a newly-approved project and expressing sponsor support for it.
What this is
A letter announcing the appointment of a project manager or team leader to a newly-approved project and expressing sponsor support for it.
Why it's useful
Official announcement of a project's start and identification of the person in charge is always a good idea. This letter goes further and makes explicit statements about the authority the project manager has; the fact that the team members working in different functional departments are responsible for delivering results according to the project schedule, costs and deliverables; and the fact that the sponsor is fully behind the project.
How to use it
Have an executive sponsor publish such a letter once a project concept has been approved for at least further investigation in the Initiation Phase, so that from the beginning the project, the project manager, and all required team member activities are treated with respect. Publish the letter to functional managers and team members.
