To define what a project is, we can say that it is a set of activities related to each other, pursuing a common goal, specific requirements, in a given period of time and under a given budget. With a beginning and an end and that must serve to create a unique product, service or result and, therefore, activities that are performed to meet routine activities can not be considered projects. I highlight two concepts:
- Temporal: A project has a fixed beginning and end.
- Unique: No two projects are alike.
