Project Board (Definition)

The decision making body for the project. Comprised of a Project Executive/Sponsor, Senior User and Senior Supplier, the Project Board makes decisions in regards to project viability and issues as they are escalated. They provide guidance to the Project Manager and communicate project status to corporate or program management. The Project Board is not a democracy controlled by votes. The Executive is the key decision maker because they are ultimately responsible to the business. They are supported by the Senior User and the Senior Supplier.
