What is a project l.jpg

What is a Project?

  • A significant, non-routine change, with defined objectives, a clear start/end and which requires an investment decision. It needs to be planned, monitored and controlled.

  • “A series of related activities aimed at achieving the same ultimate objective, with minimum risk”

  • “A discrete piece of work which has a clear start and finish and provides specific benefits for accepted costs in an agreed time-scale”
