    What is a project?

    A project is:

    • "An activity of limited duration
    • The purpose of which is to create some sort of outcome
    • That has generally not been done before, and
    • The achievement of which signals completion of the activity".

    There are a lot of other more formal, but less descriptive, ones, so this gives us the best impression.

    2.

    Where do projects come from?

    • Someone, somewhere has a vision of how things might be changed.

    So projects are about "change".

    Project activities are then typically launched to develop the idea, that is,

    • To take advantage of an opportunity,
    • To satisfy a need or
    • To solve a problem.

    This is done by creating a new product or service.

    And the outcome is typically known as a "deliverable".

    Not all activities are projects, of course.

    Things that you do regularly, as a matter of course, are not projects.

    However, some things that you wish to do, you can deliberately make into a project, and that requires additional effort.

    For example, getting breakfast every morning does not need to be a project

    That's because you know exactly what to do ?you've done it so many times before!

    But getting your youngsters to get breakfast for the first time on a camping trip could well be a project!

    If you decide to make this breakfast getting exercise a project, then you may not realize it but what you are doing is project management!

    6.

    In short,
    Project management is a management technique

    • For getting things done faster
    • And the things done right, more cost-effectively.

    Bear in mind, however, that managing the project is not the same thing as managing the technology embedded in the project.
