This article deals systematically with the author’s practical experience of organising and carrying out terminology projects and attempts to relate them to project management theory. It is intended to serve as a guide of sorts for terminologists confronted with the task of managing a terminology project. The first section defines what terminology projects are, what sets them apart from other types of project, what forms they can take and how these forms are prioritised within the project portfolio, as well as proposing a possible model to describe the various phases of a project. Separate sections are then devoted to each of the phases, namely Acquisition, Needs Analysis and Offering, Planning, Implementation and Controlling, Handover and Completion, and Follow-up.
