Part 1 I'm Sai Purna Satyanarayana Murthy Challa Venkata. I obtained my undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Technology, at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University. As for a place I'd love to visit, if I could travel safely and had the necessary resources, I've always dreamed of exploring the beautiful landscapes and rich culture of New Zealand. A fun fact about me is that I have a passion for playing the guitar, and I enjoy strumming a tune or two whenever I have some free time. Part 2 Define a project and describe five characteristics that differentiate projects from other aspects of an organization's daily operations. A project is like a short-term mission with a clear goal. It's something special your team works on for a limited time to achieve a specific result. These objectives often include creating a product, service, or result that is distinct and separate from an organization's regular operations. Projects are characterized by their temporary nature, involving a finite timeline and resources allocated specifically to the project ( Kenny, 2003) . They require cross-functional teams, bringing together individuals with diverse expertise to work collectively towards the project's goals. Projects also involve a level of uncertainty and risk, as they often deal with novel challenges or opportunities, necessitating risk management strategies and contingency planning. Unlike daily operations, which are ongoing and repetitive, projects are dynamic, bringing about change and innovation within an organization. Explain the role projects play in the strategic management process. Projects play an important role in an organization's strategic management process. They are instrumental in executing an organization's strategic objectives by translating high-level goals
into actionable tasks. Projects offer a means to drive innovation and adapt to changing market conditions, allowing organizations to explore new opportunities and respond to emerging challenges ( Hyväri, 2016) . Through strategic project selection and prioritization, organizations can optimize the use of their resources to achieve the most critical strategic objectives, ensuring a more efficient and effective approach to goal attainment ( Kenny, 2003) . Successfully executed projects can provide a competitive advantage by creating unique products, services, or processes that set the organization apart from its competitors. Projects also serve as a framework for monitoring progress, evaluating results, and making necessary adjustments to stay aligned with an organization's strategic goals, ensuring that the desired strategic outcomes are achieved.
