The Create WBS process has four outputs:
■ Work breakdown structure
■ WBS dictionary
■ Scope baseline
■ Project document updates
I've covered the WBS in detail already. Updates to the scope statement and project document updates might come about as a result of changes that occur when you're creating the WBS. You can see from the examples you've walked through in this chapter how new deliverables or requirements might surface as a result of working on the WBS. These requested changes should be reviewed and either approved or denied using your change control processes. (I'll talk about that in Chapter 10.) The approved changes should be noted in the project scope statement, and the project management plan and other project documents should be updated to reflect the new approved project scope statement.
