Task concepts


There are different task concepts which explain meaning of this simple word. Usually “task” means any result-oriented piece of work which leads to attainment of certain predefined objective(s), along with certain constrains (such as work scope and time) which should be observed. Let’s consider this concept of task in a complex manner to achieve a deep understanding of this term:

  • Task vs. event – event is something that is supposed to surely happen when certain conditions come true (for example certain triggering date is on the calendar). Event may pursue some goals, but unlike a task it may have no strict results to produce at the end.
  • Task vs. project – project is a complex of actions, goals and arrangements which may include thousands of smaller tasks. However, every task can be considered as a small project.
  • Task vs. process – process is a continuous sequence of recurring steps or actions; it produces certain results per iteration, during the whole time of process existence, while task is a one time activity with definite start and end.
  • Task vs. activity (task vs. action) – activity is any state or quality of being active (a state opposite to complete rest). Every task means certain activity, while not every activity is a task that always has a purpose.
  • Task vs. function – function is a specific action or behavior which is required and expected from the object or person. Function is strictly associated with the purpose of object or with the role of person.
  • Task vs. job – sometimes job can be used as a synonym for task, but in terms of employment job means a labor status of a person – occupation which includes different functions and specialized tasks to perform daily.
