Q1) Differentiate between the terms project and programme.
-A project has a limited budget, whereas a programme may not. The construction of a bridge is likely to have a set budget from the start, whereas a traffic improvement programme may receive funding throughout
-A project has a finite timescale whereas a programme may not. The construction of a bridge will have a plan with a completion date, whereas a traffic improvement programme will be ongoing
-A programme is a number of projects whereas a project is obviously just 1. The construction of a bridge is classed as a project, whereas a traffic improvement programme is made up of a number of projects, some of which could be the construction of a bridge
-A project has a set scope, whereas a programmes scope may change. The construction of a bridge will have a predetermined scope before costruction commences, however a traffic improvement programmes scope will develop throughout the activities
A project will have a single customer, whereas a programme can have a number of customers through the life span. In the case of the bridge construction there will be 1 client, whereas a travel improvement programme will have many customers and clients such as the london underground or a local council
