  • Defining a project means sitting down and really thinking about and determining what you want the outcome to be. You need to decide the goal/outcome of the project, what the budget is, possible obstacles and if the project is really as worthwhile as you think it is.
  • Assumptions are circumstances and events that need to occur for the project to be successful, but are outside the total control of the project team. Assumptions are accepted as true and are often without proof or demonstration. Constraints are things that might restrict, limit, or regulate the project. Generally constraints are outside the total control of the project team.
