A â€˜Work Breakdown Structureâ€™ (WBS) is a deliverable-oriented hierarchical â€˜decompositionâ€™ of the work to be executed by the project team, to accomplish the project goal(s) and objectives and create the required deliverables. A deliverable is any unique and verifiable product, result, or capability to perform a service that must be produced to complete a process, phase, or project.
The WBS is an important tool for use in providing the basic ‘raw material’ required for developing a fully loaded (complete) workplan: The tasks, activities, and work packages.
A complete workplan, done using a scheduling tool, by default, will represent a work breakdown structure in its outline format.
Note: Introduction and Purpose section of the subsidiary must be used to explain, in your words, the purpose of the respective project management subsidiary plan. This will be an opportunity for you to explain your understanding of each of respective knowledge domain. .
An â€˜exemplaryâ€™ score (2.25-2.50 points) will reflect a foundational understanding of the knowledge domain and how it integrates with your specific project in the portfolio business case. This must include the exact format requirements, it must follow the instructional guidelines, and it must align with your specific project. Errors with format, or lack of compliance with the requirements, or a mis-aligned with the content of your project will result in a loss of points. An â€˜effectiveâ€™ score (2.00-2.24 points) will reflect a basic understanding of the essential components of the â€˜subsidiary plan.â€™ Errors with format, or lack of compliance with the requirements, or content not related to the specific [project, will result in a loss of points. An â€˜ineffectiveâ€™ score (0-1.99 points) will reflect a subsidiary plan or artifact that is poorly organized and difficult to read, one that takes the words of the resource template and uses them, one that lacks format exactness and does not follow the requirements, and/or is unrelated to your project in the portfolio.
