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:
  • Scope
  • Deliverables
  • Budget
  • Resources
  • Timeline
  • Risk and issue management
  • Communication
  • Documentation

Examples of different types of business projects will be shared in future episodes.
