Project deliverables entail the results borne out of a project undertaking. A deliverable entails a distinctive and certifiable result, product, or service that must be made for a phase, process, or project to be considered complete. The deliverables are agreed upon in the initial stages of project planning and are typically linked to the project objectives. There are two broad categories of deliverables; internal deliverables and external deliverables.
Internal deliverables entail the project processes intended to facilitate the running of the project. They do not constitute the end result of a project. They are generated internally. Examples include status reports, budgets, project artifacts, or budgets. External deliverables constitute the end result of a project that is presented to the client or users.
