The WRaPT tools are not designed to be used by a single workforce planner. The power of using the WRaPT process comes in giving front line teams the tools to plan their workforce, and for this to then be collated centrally. Whilst it takes time for front line teams to think through how they currently meet demand and how they might do it in the future, workforce planning is much more powerful this way.
We find that the best way is to set up a core project team consisting of central functions as well as operational staff and service managers.
