Defining terms used within the Port Revitalisation Programme
A project is a temporary organisation that is created for the purpose of delivering one or more business products. Usually a set of interrelated tasks to be executed over a fixed period to achieve a set of objectives.
A temporary flexible organisation structure created to co-ordinate, direct and oversee the implementation of a set of related projects and activities.
- Programmes are typically completed in several tranches over an extended period to achieve outcomes that are greater than the sum of the parts.
- Programmes are about managing change with a strategic vision and a roadmap of how to get there. They are able to deal with uncertainty and complex inter-relationships in a dynamic environment by being flexible.
All the programmes and stand-alone projects being undertaken by an organisation, a group of organisations, or an organisational unit.

“What should it be?” Pre-feasibility studies usually include a range of options for the technical and economic aspects of a project and are used to justify continued exploration, to complete the required project permitting or to attract a joint venture partner.
“What will it be?” As the name implies, a feasibility study is used to determine the viability of an idea.
The objective of such a study is to ensure a project is legally and technically feasible and economically justifiable. It tells us whether a project is worth the investment.
