Project Management

When ZWA accepts a project, we pride ourselves in taking ownership for providing team leadership. Your project is our project.  ZWA is set up to focus on everything from the big picture to the details. We have a process called “Second Look” that is at the core of ZWA. It involves continual learning, always asking how we could have done it better, faster and cheaper. This leads to our holistic approach. And we have found that to be a very powerful way to work with our clients, often creating a result that is greater than the sum of its parts.
