Creating a Project

The very definition of 'project' depends very much on the nature of an organization’s work and the frame of reference of the different stakeholders in their projects.

A commonly recognized set of characteristics is that a project is a one-time effort to accomplish an explicit objective by a specific time. It has a distinguishable start and finish and a time frame for completion. It includes a unique set of coordinated tasks or activities, which also have definite starting and finishing points.

bCommunities’ projects can be adapted to offer a management environment suitable for most organizations and regardless of the kind of business objectives they intend to accomplish.

To create a new Project, log in and click Projects on the main menu.
