Work Breakdown Structure

A work breakdown structure (WBS) is a key project deliverable that organizes the team's work into manageable sections. The work breakdown structure is a hierarchical decomposition of the total scope of work to be carried out by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables. A WBS also provides the necessary framework for detailed cost estimating and control along with providing guidance for schedule development and control.
