Chapter 1: OMG! It's a Project!

Exam Objective

It seems that everything is a project these days, whether you are reorganizing the company, launching a new product, or even having a holiday party.

Where do all these projects come from? In this chapter, I will discuss the internal and external factors — such as business needs and market demands — that initiate the need for a project.

Next, I talk about the methods that organizations use to select the right projects, given that there are usually more projects than there are resources to do them. Some variables that organizations look at include strategic alignment, funding, and project risk.
