There are two very similar questions on defining what project is:

Should they be merged?

The only concern I have is one question states to disregard the PMBOK, while the other one has an answer that explicitly quotes the PMBOK.

If we merged them, I guess we could edit the non PMBOK answer to indicate that the poster is answering in the context of specifically not referencing the PMBOK, since the other question doesn't state the preference either way. I'd hate to not merge just because of one easily-fixable issue...

Also, if I merged, I'd use Pawel's version of the question as the canonical version. It's better written, has more answers, and has more upvotes.

Let me know what you think.

    I'd second this approach. Merging them, but highlighting that Pawel's answer sounds more like an 'oficial' definition, while the answers from other topics may be edited to present a 'non oficial' point of view.

Although you ask different questions, the answers of the first question bring any added value compared to the answers in the second question. I would merge them.


I think they are distinct, but that merging them will create a question/answer with more value.
