Getting Started

To start the work decomposition process, think about the following:

• Does a template WBS exist as part of our methodology or from a past project that I can use?

• What are the major deliverables?

• What is the project approach? The project lifecycle? The major project phases?

• Think through the entire project. What does the "end" look like?

To continue the work decomposition process, think about these questions:

• Can I break down this WBS element (deliverable) into sub-components?

• How exactly will the deliverables be produced? What processes and methods will be used?

• How do I ensure acceptable quality in deliverables and in the process?

• Can I make adequate costs and duration estimates from this level of detail?
