What is a project?

It’s a temporary endeavour undertaken to create 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.

What is Project management ?

“The application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet the requirements of a particular project.” The process of directing and controlling a project from start to finish may be further divided into 5 basic phases
