    Purpose articulates the reason behind doing a specific thing through which one plans to achieve from it. Objective is part of goal through which purpose is achieved. The terms purpose and objective are often used interchangeably as it has subtle differences between the both.

    For example: The purpose of the change management process is to control the lifecycle of the changes where as objective is to respond to changing business needs.
