Client / Customer

The Glossary

 

Client / Customers

The person or group that is the direct beneficiary of a project or service is the client / customer.
These are the people for whom the project is being undertaken (indirect beneficiaries are stakeholders). In many organisations, internal beneficiaries are called "clients" and external beneficiaries are called "customers," but this is not a hard and fast rule.
