Lesson 2: How to Initiate a Project
How a project starts?
Projects are done for one of the following three reasons
Business Requirements: Example: The government requires airline companies to implement safety-management systems. A company needs to find out the success of their ecommerce web-site.
Opportunities:To take advantage of an opportunity like technology breakthrough. Example: many projects may be planned targeting iPhone.
Problem: To reduce/eliminate a problem. Airport x faces 2/3 accidents every year, the airport authority may wish to perform a project to identify causes and develop solutions.
