This paper provides an analysis of similarities and differences in project management for profit and nonprofit organizations. Furthermore, it is indicated what these organizations can learn from each other. The project management responsibilities are divided in six categories: management of cost, time, communications, human resources, quality, and type of project manager. Gaps between theoretical best practices compared with actual practices in both, profit and non profit organizations are pointed out.
