Although we see or read about impressive examples of projects every day, actually defining a project is sometimes not easy. The monumental engineering feat known as the Eurotunnel (or Chunnel), the successful bid for the 2000 Summer Olympic Games by the city of Page 35 Sydney, the great pyramids of Giza, and the Panama Canal are all well-known examples of projects. On a less grand scale, the completion of a team project at school, writing a term paper, decorating the house for a Christmas party or a visit from family, or a weekly shopping trip to the grocery store are all examples of projects that we engage in on a daily, almost routine, basis.
