Project and Event Management

What is a Project?

At Heather Ostertag and Associates a project is defined as work that happens once, has a clear beginning and end, and is intended to create a unique product or knowledge. It may involve only one person, or thousands. It may last several days, or many years. It may be undertaken by a single organization, or by an alliance of several stakeholders. A project may be as simple as organizing a one-day event like a concert or conference or as complex as constructing a dam on a river.

What is Project Management?

At Heather Ostertag and Associates we see project management as the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities in order to meet or exceed stakeholder needs and expectations of a project. The project manager, sometimes referred to as the project co-coordinator or leader, manages the details of the project on a day-to-day basis. This is an ongoing challenge that requires an understanding of the broader contextual environment of the project and the ability to balance conflicting demands between:

  • Available resources and expectations;
  • Differing stakeholder priorities;
  • Identified needs and project scope;
  • Quality and quantity.
