  Answer the question after watching the movie “The Martian Movie”

The definition of a project as provided by Pinto (2019): A project is a unique venture with a beginning and end, conducted by people to meet established goals within parameters of cost, schedule, and quality. A project can be considered to be any series of activities and tasks that: 

• Have a specific objective to be completed within certain specifications

• Have defined start and end dates 

• Have funding limits, if applicable 

• Consume human and nonhuman resources, such as money, people, equipment 

• Are multifunctional (i.e., cut across several functional lines)

How does this definition fit the movie personalities and events versus just operations management?
