As described by the Project Management Institute, a project is a temporary endeavor that is undertaken to create a unique result, service, or product. A project has a time limit, with a start and end date. Project management is the application of expertise, resources, and time to manage the project and deliver what is required of the project. Projects have different phases, such as requirements gathering, design, construction, testing, and implementation. Project managers use various systems throughout the project’s phases, including high- and low-tech tools such as computer systems and project management software, policies and procedures, and paper forms.
