Are Projects Different?

Why can’t projects be done as ordinary work in regular departments? Why have a separate structure? Very small projects involving one or two people for a short time can be done in a department. It is a senseless argument that anything that is a project has to be done in a separate organization. However, with larger projects there are many benefits to the separate organization approach. Where to draw the line between large and small depends on organizations and the nature of projects. With rightsizing and accountability more work is being performed as projects.
