1.3 Examples of projects
A project might involve establishing a new product or service, developing an existing product or service or discontinuing a product or closing a service that is no longer required.
A project might arise from recognition of new needs of customers or service users or from an opportunity that is expected to deliver benefits to the organisation.
Projects might also arise from a new organisational requirement, for example, as a response to a change in legislation that requires changes in employment systems or in health and safety procedures. In such a case, the project could be investigating the extent of change necessary and reporting recommendations to a decision-making body or the implementation of the change to the point where routine working could be resumed. (The routine work that followed the change would no longer be a project.)
