2 Similarities Between Projects and Operations What is essentially important to understand is that: A project is usually on the ‘spend’ part of the equation with a potential for a future ‘revenue or benefit’ of some kind. The gap, therefore, between the spend and the revenue is longer than the typical operations cycle in the company. Unlike that, operations, are an integral part of the value chain of a company. Hence, they are closely related to the revenues of the current accounting cycle or period.
Typical approvals are from senior management or the stakeholders or some bank or some regulatory body. In literature, the PFS is designated as one of the ‘exit gates’ of the project. In practice, it is indeed an ‘exit gate’ that tells the project manager to move on with his work. But given the fact that it is an exit gate, it is a very important activity. And the importance lies in the fact that: From a project management perspective, the Project Feasibility Report is the document that provides the baseline of the business case that is fulfilled by the project.
While the ‘art’ component is arguably true with any management discipline, the science cannot be undermined by this argument. Having said that, after working in different project environments globally, I saw that the fundamental understanding of project management is often not up to the desired mark. This phenomenon (of lack of knowledge) makes most managers overrate the ‘art’ component. We differ from this view in this book. 2 How Project Management Evolved Project management is highly application oriented like any other management science.
