  • Projects deliver unique products or services
  • Projects are temporary in nature. Upon completion the team is dismantled
  • Projects are constrained by the limited resources of time, cost and scope
  • A project is considered as successful if it is completed within the agreed upon time, cost and scope, and met its business objectives
  • Projects are managed by project managers
  • Operations are ongoing in nature
  • Operations produce standard outputs
  • Operations are managed by operations / functional managers
