What is a Project in Project Management?

What is a project in project management? Simply put, a project is a series of tasks that need to be completed in order to reach a specific outcome. A project can also be defined as a set of inputs and outputs required to achieve a particular goal. Projects can range from simple to complex and can be managed by one person or a hundred.

Projects are often described and delegated by a manager or executive. They go over their expectations and goals and it’s up to the team to manage logistics and execute the project in a timely manner. Sometimes deadlines can be given or a time limitation. For good project productivity, some teams break the project up into individual tasks so they can manage accountability and utilize team strengths.
