What is Project Management? More specifically, what is a project? The Project Management Institute defines a project as a temporary group activity designed to produce a unique product, service or result. A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources. And a project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies. For example, the development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales into a new  geographic market, a graduate degree — all are projects.
And all must be expertly managed to deliver the on-time, on-budget results, learning, and integration that organizations need.
