A project can be described as a one-off undertaking with a well-defined set of desired end results. A project consists of a set of activities that rely on each other to achieve an outcome. These activities are planned and then carried out in a specific sequence in order to create a unique product or service. A project has a specific timeframe within which it is to be completed. Every event can be considered as a project.
