To discuss: Does the statement express what this project is about?

The role of the project statement - we think of it as like a tuning fork, to tune the project as it develops.

Then, after more discussion we decided that actually its all there - in the cut down into, and the Aims and Objectives.

ActionSo, we will trim and then finalize.
