Question: I have been tasked with creating a team charter for a new BI team. This team will be responsible for divisional BI strategy, vision and execution of data delivery tools. Currently we have Business Objects and SharePoint and highly used Excel. Business Objects is used as a data extractor to Excel and SharePoint and is a mess with no governance. Where do I start with the charter and will this work since the warehouse and other BI tools (such as ETL) are on a different team?

Joe Oates' Answer: A team charter is an agreement between a management sponsor or champion and a group of people organized into a team. Team charters provide the very useful purpose of avoiding vague understandings that almost always lead to disappointment.
