International Programs, Projects, Developments, and Initiatives
In setting up our new website we strive to use a logical web hierarchy and
literal descriptions to prepare personally edited pages as frequently as
possible, as much for ourselves as the user. The four terms here are often
presented in exchange with one and the other or make reference to the other in a
progression of conclusions and steps in order to come into reality. Let's
carefully use our words to avoid misunderstanding, assumption, or speculation.
Programs - Programs are generally a system of social and
practical services provided as elemental institutional developments that
have matured from initiatives and projects to become permanent
representations within our organization. A program is an ordered set of
events to generate a resultant activity with guidelines and expectations.
Programs are manifestations and establishments that are generally
sustainable on their own through providing opportunities and services
through our members.
Projects - A project is a great effort or undertaking involving a
concerted effort, general support, and specialized planning as being a good
ideal between a group of people or an institution with a great result in
idealisms or other permanent development. Generally initiatives that have
gained ample support to be considered implemented and more diversely may be
contained as elements of a program but not vice-versa. To consider an
initiative developed from an ideal to a project a feasibility study and
project development plan generally are precedent.
Developments - Refer to all those items (services, programs,
projects) that have been manifested or realized through the introduction of
ideals where articles and studies (research) has been included to justify a
concept and a means for its creation as something of substance that can come
into existence or that already exists.
Initiatives - Initiatives are good ideas and best practices that
are being adopted as concepts under development and some support has been
developed among our board members. Initiative are the opening move for
bringing interest to an ideal or establishing a program. Initiatives can
also be promotional in nature for Globcal International and is a term that
is rarely used in publication except to launch an ideal or show support
toward affiliated or potentially affiliated partnerships.
