What's the difference between a task and a project?

Printer-friendly version

An IT task is a relatively simple job that is not estimated to need more than one person for 20 hours to complete and won't have a knock-on effect on any other IT tasks in process. Anything that's likely to take longer and require more resources needs to be planned in. This is handled by the Project Prioritization Steering Committee, who will review the ITS project proposal developed from your original support request and determine the project's overall value to the University and schedule it accordingly.
