The general aim of B-WISE project is to develop and implement a new strategic approach (Blueprint) to sectoral cooperation on skills needed to reinforce the empowering work of WISEs in strengthening the skills and competences of disadvantaged groups and to sustainably tackle the digitalisation challenges they face. The project will achieve this by building a sustainable European Sectoral Skills Strategy for the WISEs sector that brings together all stakeholders to undertake transformational change. This Alliance will create more informed intersectoral collaboration between WISEs sector representatives, VET providers and authorities and pursue the following specific objectives.
The purpose of the Project Management Plan is to provide a single point of reference on the structures, procedures, and tools that will help to govern and manage the B-WISE project. This document should be a handbook to be accessed frequently by partners to understand the management procedures of this project.
Procedures for preparation and submission of deliverables, internal progress reporting, meetings, and management of risks are described. Finally, key tools are listed which will primarily be used to manage and share project documents, and to assign and monitor tasks; project registries and other internal records; and communication. Templates have been defined to facilitate the project team in preparing internal and external project documentation. This document will be reviewed and updated as necessary with the implementation of the project and will be stored on Teams.
