Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again. The management of these two systems is often very different and requires varying technical skills and philosophy, hence requiring the development of project management.

While there is no such thing as a “Model Bank”—every bank does some things well, and others not as well when it comes to technology—it is possible to conceive of a “Model Bank” through real world examples of effective usage of technology.
