1400-4: GLOSSARY OF TERMS:
PROJECT: A temporary endeavor with a defined beginning and end (usually time constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, and to bring about beneficial change or added value. Typical steps in a project are planning, organizing, implementing, controlling, and closeout. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semipermanent functional activities to produce products or services.
