In this episode Jeanette outlines her definition of a business project.
The dictionary definition of a project is “an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned to achieve a particular aim”
Let’s simplify that definition.
A business project is the change vehicle to achieve a goal (strategy).
It has a set period of time, with a sequence of tasks, involving people with different skills to working collaboratively to achieve a great result.
Have you heard the saying “a goal without a plan is just a wish”?
All business projects must have a plan that integrates the three business pillars – people, process and technology.
When you are planning and implementing a business project all of these components must be considered:
- Risk and issue management
Examples of different types of business projects will be shared in future episodes.
