The project can be divided into subprojects, which include some elements of project (phase of installation, testing, etc.). Subproject is generally associated with a particular complex task or activity, although it is possible that it will relate to some tangible result (product).
Subproject can be dedicated to a different department of the organization, but also to a completely different organization. In such situation, the risk of the project increase, because we do not have the full supervision of the subcontractor (time, quality), as well as the risk that our trade secrets will be taken over by the competition.
