Transitioning from WBS to Project Schedule


Work Breakdown Structure (Webinar 3)

Project teams often confuse the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) with the Project Schedule or treat these different project deliverables as interchangeable project elements. The WBS is a pre-requisite project deliverable defining tangible project deliverables while the project schedule depicts how these deliverables will be produced.

Creation of a complete WBS for a project can be accomplished when project teams understand and adhere to the WBS 100% rule. The 100% rule ensures that all deliverable components are included in the WBS and helps the project team decompose the WBS into manageable work packets. The work packets represent the level of clarity in the WBS that will allow for a natural transition from tangible deliverables to activities for producing these deliverables.

Attend this 1 hour presentation to learn how to build a detail WBS that represents 100% of the work to be produced and expand the WBS deliverables into project schedule activities.

In this webinar participants learn about:

  • The use of the WBS 100% rule
  • Techniques for numbering the WBS components to clearly depict relationship of each WBS component to its parent component
  • Using the WBS as a blueprint that can be easily tailored to represent smaller project efforts and drive our project schedule activities
