Project management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning / end and defined budget.
The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual, which are repetitive, permanent or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different and requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.
