It is that if you decide to do several things and incorporate them into
one project then a strategy is needed for that and a thorough discussion
to consider each of them in relation to the whole. Someone or a
committee of people should also make a decision in terms of what to
include and how to proceed.
We also need a project manager, and also a page managed by the project
manager that lists the various components of the project and how and why
they are to be linked together.
Then each component will have a link to another page explaining that
components role in the larger plan including the strategy as well as the
tasks that need to be completed.
