Work Package
A work package is a building block of the work breakdown structure that allows the project management to define the steps necessary for completion of the work. As such, a work package can be thought of as a sub-project, which, when combined with other work package units, form the completed project. Breaking down the work into work packages allows multiple teams to work simultaneously or sequentially on different components of the project. Each team follows the steps defined in the work package plan and completes them by the specified deadline. When all teams have finished their individual work packages, the whole project comes together and the objectives have been achieved. Depending on the kind of tasks, a distinction can be made between content work packages, which focus on the tasks that will lead to the project outcomes, and horizontal work packages, that are concerned with the management of the project.
