Work Breakdown Structure
“He who fails to plan is planning to fail.” — Winston Churchill
A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is the cornerstone of effective job management, planning, execution, controlling, monitoring, and reporting.
The WBS is a method for getting either simple or complex, multi-step jobs completed in a structured way. It's a way to breaking down jobs into portions that can be measured so you can get things done faster and more efficiently. Simply, the WBS is a hierarchical tree structure that outlines your job sections.
