Developing a Work Breakdown Structure with Clear Scope

A Work Breakdown Structure:

  • Plays a crucial role in developing the project approach and methodology;
  • Helps you in determining the staffing and cost of the project;
  • Assists in preparing the project schedule;
  • Plays a role in creating the baseline against which the projects’ performance can be monitored;

A Work Breakdown Structure allows you to become fully familiar with the scope of work.

To be clear, if something is not in the Work Breakdown Structure, it is not in the scope of work.
