A Multi-dimensional Approach to Management of Port Life Cycle: The Case of Major Ports in India
This paper aims at understanding the different dimensions of life cycle of a seaport enabling the port-planners to decide on their strategies. There are different stages in the life cycle of an organization. The course of action would vary from stage to stage of the life cycle. This paper aims at identifying the different dimensions of port business. This has been accomplished using factor analysis, a multivariate data analysis technique. This paper further explores the relevance of these dimensions in the context of major Indian ports at the different stages of the lifecycle. The results of analysis show that primarily four dimensions impact the life cycle. The paper finally recommends a strategic framework for planners to respond to the management needs in the different stages of the life cycle.
