Project Management Definitions

Skip the intro and go straight to the articles in this section

As with most professions, project management is full of jargon and acronyms. Here’s a list of terms I’ve come across and need to deal with frequently. Please note that different people and companies will have different definitions for some of these terms. That’s just the nature of the industry.

If you really want to learn about the different project management definitions, check out the certification offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI). You don’t have to actually write the exam, but if you go through the training you’ll come away from the effort with more exposure to the profession’s jargon than most people.

This list is by no means complete. Use the search box at the top-right to search this site for other terms as they may appear in some of my blog postings or in other pages.
