What does the term project mean, and how to manage the different types of “projects”?

The term project could be used for anything, from going out to dinner to building a nuclear power plant. So what does the term project mean? We will address this question from different perspectives. We will discuss the term from a service provider viewpoint and a project owner perspective. Further, we will split the project owner perspectives and consider the question from an existing organization viewpoint and from the perspective of a new investment. In this article and video, we will also have a peek into asset management. Finally, we address the question, do all “projects” require project management?

What triggered this article and video is a discussion with a colleague, who is participating in a SUKAD PM Quest Course, Mr. Mohamed Al-Awadhi. Mohamed is using the course and the CAMMPTM Model to launch a new business, a venture.

A long article but we think it is worth your time.

What is the difference between output and outcome?

What is the difference between output and outcome? Why does it matter in project management?

In the project management context, an output could refer to the result of a given process, like those discussed in ISO 21500 or PMBOK Guide. Well, if we consider the output of the ultimate process = the project, then the output is the final result or product.

What is the difference between quality and grade?

What is the difference between stakeholder and shareholder?

Kids were having steak for lunch so they were steakeholders 🙂

Well, our topic today is not about steakholders but stakeholders and shareholders. No cup holders for today.

Honestly, this topic is easy and straight forward. We do not often see too much confusion between the two terms in our workshops. People understand the term shareholder and they know it is different from a stakeholder. The confusion is often about the stakeholders themselves – there is no clear understanding of who are the stakeholders.

Two videos for you – the first focuses on shareholders versus stakeholders. The second video is actually an audio presentation discussing stakeholders.

Let us know what you think.
