PROJECT MANAGEMENT 2 Introduction Businesses create unique programs that always have the intent of achieving a specific objective. The programs are managed in a process known as project management where the skills and abilities of the managers are utilized to achieve the success of the entire project. A project is a unique organization or process that is undertaken with a major objective to achieve a specific goal by an organization (Project Management Institute, 2013). Specific individuals are assigned to the projects to ensure their skills contribute to the success of the program. A project management process takes five steps for the termination of the project and its successful implementation in an organization. Differences between a Project and an Operation Work Projects are unique programs that are created by a business after actualization of the benefits they would contribute to the institution. The special programs are undertaken in a specific period and are temporary. It means, after the project achieves its desired objectives or reasons for creation, it is terminated as the business continues with its normal activities. In addition to that, a project is introduced in a business when it wants to introduce a new product or activity into the business that will increase the profit-making of an organization (Project Management Institute, 2013). On the other hand, operations of work in an organization are the normal activities that are conducted to ensure production takes place. Operations have similarity with projects regarding the labour and their ability to ensure productivity. However, operations do not intend to increase the productivity of a business neither does it have unique goals.

Most Important Characteristics of a Successful Project To begin, it is essential to have a clear and understandable purpose for the project. A project should be clear to all the participating members to ensure they all understand the requirements and are well conversant of the process that should take place ( Too, 2014) . The goals, objectives and vision of the project should be determined before the commencement of the project activities. In addition to that, a successful project has a well-structured and coordinated teamwork ( Too, 2014) . All the team members should be aware of their responsibilities and their

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
