Consider a past situation where you were a member of a team that was involved in a project. Ideally, this situation should be where you currently work. However, you can use any situation or experience in your personal life as well. If you are at a loss of thinking of a scenario – then you may choose to make up a project that may be of interest to you instead.
- Describe the overall project goals and your role in the project.
- Explain how the project scope was clearly defined at the beginning of the project or how it was not clearly defined.
- Prepare and share with us a listing of deliverables from your project. Offer at least 4 deliverables and two work packages per deliverable. Identify the WBS code accordingly. For example:
Breakdown Description WBS Code
Project Project Title 1.0
Deliverable 1 Deliverable 1 Description 1.1
WP1 First Work Package 1.1.1
WP2 Second Work Package 1.1.2
Deliverable 2 Deliverable 2 Description 1.2
WP1 First Work Package 1.2.1
WP2 Second Work Package 1.2.2
- Finally, complete a quick google search, and locate a website (that appears credible) that presents an example WBS. Share the link with your peers along with a sentence or two related to how their WBS aligns to the typical structure of a WBS as presented in the week introduction.
