Work Breakdown Structure

Work Breakdown Structure

See page 33 of the text for a graphic example of a work breakdown structure (WBS) hierarchy. Create a three level product-based WBS from a project you have managed or have experience with as a team member and present a graphic representation of your WBS hierarchy. A description of the following components and how each relates to the WBS must be included:

  • Three main deliverables,
  • A unique numbering scheme, and
  • Three work packages.

Lastly, provide a one- to three-sentence project objective to describe the focus of this WBS.

The assignment must be submitted in Microsoft Excel for ease of organization; APA formatting rules will not need to be followed if an Excel spreadsheet is used.


Read the following chapters in Cost and Value Management in Projects

View this Rita Mulcahy video, “Getting Started in Project Management – Work Breakdown Structure (Links to an external site.),” which provides information on beginning project management by breaking the project down into smaller pieces and supports this week’s readings.
