A PIER report documents the history and outcome of a project and is used to build a repository of what works well and what doesn't in the organization.
The Program Charter is to consolidate information, like a master project, across a program that will encompass several smaller projects. Individual projects should use the Project Charter Template.
The Project Charter documents the scope of the project and identifies all of the key stakeholders. It is normally created when a project is first conceptualized and can be used to document known issues or risks.
A form used to request a change to the scope of a project.

A Work-Breakdown Structure (WBS) lists all the activities that are needed to complete a project, and specifies when they should be completed. This template is used to help organize projects and to ensure that some standard activities, including Service Design and Release Management, are not being overlooked.
