The unit for measuring project's work

The answer is Time!

Yes, it is at the first sight a bit surprising since time is used also for scheduling. However, when we mention scheduling, we are more concerned about the task duration with a specific number of resources assigned to complete it.

This might be an over simplification, as usually this involves at least some interaction between the resources which can add to the communication overhead work to be performed.
