Project

Any series of tasks or activities intended to accomplish a goal, which is ultimately to make a profit. For example, a construction company may have a project to build a house. This project involves laying in the foundation, setting up the frame, installing insulation, and so forth. A company may receive a lump sum payment at the completion of the project, or it may receive progress payments as different benchmarks on the way to completion are met. See also: Project finance.
