A project is a temporary work that creates a unique product, service, or result. The “temporary” nature of the project means that the project has a clear beginning and end point. The project ends when the project goals are achieved, or when the project terminates because it is unachievable or unachievable, or when the project no longer needs to exist.
Temporary doesn’t necessarily mean short-term. The products, services, or results produced by a project are usually not temporary. Most projects aim to create lasting results.
What Is Project Management?
