Working With People WWP: Planning for Sustainability in Projects

Working With People ​WWP is understood as the professional team practice that seeks to connect knowledge and action by a common PROJECT, which besides the technical value of production -of goods and services- mainly incorporates the value of people who get involved, participate and are developed through the actions developed within the context of the sustainable project management.

The first few weeks of a project will consist of a small team of people working on a Project Definition document. Projects are divided into six stages: Definition, Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring and Control, Closure. Each project stage is characterised by a distinct set of activities that take the project from its first idea to its conclusion. Each stage is of equal importance and contributes to the overall success of the project.
