Initiating A Project

Work Breakdown Structures

Our office can help to map out all of the critical work elements (tasks) within your project in order to ensure that your project is a success.

Why is a WBS important?

  • Key objectives of the project and the tasks required to complete those objectives are captured
  • The relationships between different tasks are mapped
  • By looking at task relationships, the project team can visualize the work that needs to be completed in order to complete an objective.
  • Members of the project team can see how one task can affect the outcome of the entire project through task interdependency.
  • A WBS can help a project manager predict certain outcomes within a project. By doing this, the project management team can prepare for events that may negatively affect the project and prepare for them.

The WBS helps the project team to:

  • Allocate resources
  • Budget accordingly
  • Schedule major deliverables
  • Develop a risk management plan
  • Ensure quality assurance
