From the Paper:

"It is important to not that a number of projects may follow each other in the greater interests of subscribing to and attaining the goals of an overall program that is greater in scope in larger or expanding companies. There are many different levels of projects: they can be isolated to fulfill one specific task or goal, or they can be aligned to pursue the program goals that have no limits to their scope. The manager should not be relegated to narrowing down or thinking too specifically about what are really unlimited capacities of project implementation."
