If the answer yes, it’s important to understand that Project Management English is different to general English.

Let me give 5 examples:

  1. Risk

General English – A negative event which could happen in the future.

Project Management English – A negative or positive event which could happen in the future

2. A Sponsor

General English – Someone who pays the costs of an event (eg. sports, arts, or charity).

Project Management English – A Sponsor approves and supports a project

3. A Portfolio

General English – A portfolio could be: a container for drawings or a collection of drawings; a collection of investments; a government responsibility.

Project Management English – Project Portfolio Management means selecting, prioritising and controlling projects and programmes in line with an organisation’s strategy.

4. A Stakeholder

General English – Someone who owns part of a company or is involved in an organisation.

Project Management English – Anyone who is affected by a project, including the general public (where relevant).

General English – Configuration is simply the way things are arranged.

Project Management English – The product specifications are documented – this is the configuration. Configuration management means controlling any changes to these specifications.
