A deliverable is a work item that is delivered as part of a project. This can be a tangible item such as a document or an intangible process such as training.


It is common to differentiate between project deliverables that relate to a project itself such as a project plan and product deliverables that directly go into a product such as source code.
Deliverables can be fully intangible. For example, a project to organize an event whereby the event itself is a deliverable. It is also possible for activities such as training or work processes such as a deployment to be deliverables.
