Well, before you start anything it is always good to know WHY
you are doing it.  This is essentially the "vision" part.

HOW should presumably describe the necessary deliverables and the
strategy for getting these adopted.   The latter is almost always
missing because that is close to "business plan".

WHAT is the thing that existing charters usually specify.  Like
a secure authentication solution for mobile users.
