An alternative view sees a project managerially as a sequence of events: a «set of interrelated tasks to be executed over a fixed period and within certain cost and other limitations». A project may be a part of wider programme management or an ad hoc structure. The word «project» group project evaluation originally meant «before an action».
When the English language initially adopted the word, it referred to a plan of something, not to the act of actually carrying this plan out. Something performed in accordance with a project became known as an «object». Every project has certain phases of development. It seeks the realization of a unique and innovative deliverable, such as a product, a service, a process, or in some cases, a scientific research. Each project has a beginning and an end, and as such is considered a closed dynamic system. A project is an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned and researched about by students.
At schools, educational institutes and universities, a project is a research assignment — given to a student — which generally requires a larger amount of effort and more independent work than that involved in a normal essay assignment. In project management a project consists of a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result. Project objectives define target status at the end of the project, reaching of which is considered necessary for the achievement of planned benefits. However a continuous guard on the project progress should be kept by monitoring and evaluating. As these activities are temporary endeavors with clear start and end dates, the term «project» is applied.
