    What's the context? What do you mean by process/processes?

    I think the real question is one you have to answer yourself: are there multiple processes behind your projects, or is there one unifying process behind all of them?

Both are grammatically correct. They denote different things, depending on...whether or not there are multiple processes involved.


If there's one, overarching process you use for all of your projects, say "process." If you use a different process for different types of projects, say "processes."


This is a matter of context and semantics. Do you use a single process to perform all of your projects? Then the second is correct.

Differing processes to perform each task would indicate that the first is correct.
