What is a project?

A project can be defined as any temporary effort to achieve a unique outcome (product, service, or result) with a defined beginning and end, and the end is reached when the outcome is complete.

What is project management?

Project management is a methodical approach to planning, organizing, and executing the work necessary to complete the unique outcome(s) of a project. Project management creates a standard set of processes, tools, and techniques with the sole purpose of executing these efforts effectively and efficiently. 

Project management can provide:

  • Better understanding of project purpose and requirements
  • Consistent and effective communications
  • Efficient coordination of cross-functional resources
  • Reduced and managed project risks
  • Improved quality of outcomes
  • Better planning and execution of projects
  • Increased ability to monitor and track the project progress
  • Clearly defined roles and responsibilities
