By Nikhil Gurjar

This publication is meant as a foundation for complex therapy of innovations in undertaking administration. within the present situation the place such a lot questions are responded during the web, the information point in venture administration has come less than the effect of disruptive applied sciences. In different phrases, undertaking managers not get 'points' for realizing whatever that's simply on hand on the web.

While the latter is arguably an operations scenario, I do believe it would be very hard to motivate oneself to cook and eat the chicken the same way everyday. One could try this and ask oneself when one reaches the third day! It does sound challenging and more difficult than the first situation! So, without delving into such sensitive topics, I just want the reader to understand that the similarities could be leveraged. Third, the similarities do enable us to leverage the fundamental concept of operations viz.

This helps the readers understand that projects are a specialized faculty as they are distinctly differentiable from the operations and other faculties. In other words, it is a case of an evolving specialization as a result of differentiation. While this is a must know for any manager, one must also look at the similarities between projects and operations.

The first point, therefore, of our discussion, is that the projects are not very different from operations unlike what most books seem to say. Every activity does come to an end, even in continuous process plants! Even if one tries to argue otherwise, this is definitely true especially for maintenance work. There are objectives that are specific to a period like the production volume for the period, maintenance downtime for the period, etc. Hence, both projects and operations have a specific objective.
