What is meant by “In flight Project”?

An inflight project refers to a project that is currently in progress and has not yet been completed. In other words, an inflight project is a project that is “in flight,” or underway.

Inflight projects are typically characterized by four different factors, including the following:

  1. Scope: An inflight project typically has a defined scope and set of deliverables, which are the specific goals or outcomes that the project is intended to achieve.
  2. Timeline: An inflight project also has a defined timeline, which outlines the expected duration of the project and the key milestones or checkpoints that must be reached along the way.
  3. Resources: An inflight project typically requires a range of resources, including people, equipment, and materials, to complete the work and achieve the project’s goals.
  4. Status: The status of an inflight project can vary depending on the stage of the project and the progress that has been made. For example, an inflight project might be considered “on track” if it is making good progress and meeting its milestones, or “at risk” if it is facing challenges or delays that could impact its ultimate success.

Inflight projects are an important aspect of project management, as they represent a significant investment of time, resources, and effort for an organization. By carefully tracking and managing inflight projects, organizations can ensure that they are making progress towards their goals and achieving the desired outcomes. This can involve a range of activities, such as monitoring progress, identifying, and addressing any issues or challenges that arise, and making course corrections as needed to ensure the project stays on track.
