What Is a Work Breakdown Structure?

In project management and systems engineering, a work breakdown structure (WBS) is a deliverable-oriented breakdown of a project into smaller parts. In a work breakdown structure, the team’s work is organized into manageable sections.

How to Create a Work Breakdown Structure?

  • Get your team together to identify the deliverables and sub-deliverables of the project. Identify the overarching goal you are trying to achieve. It could be anything from building a complex structure to creating a new software feature.
  • Use Creately’s templates library to obtain documents such as the project charter, project scope statement, and project scope management plan to support Work Breakdown Structure.
  • Divide the overarching project into smaller and smaller pieces, but stop before you list out all the actions to be taken. Instead of listing out actions, think of concrete deliverables.
  • Start by dividing your project into project phases, specific large deliverables, or subtasks.
  • Create a WBS dictionary that includes the definition and scope of the various elements within your work breakdown structure.
  • Export your analysis in JPEG, SVG, PNG or PDF formats or share with colleagues for real-time feedback collection.
  • Present your analysis to key stakeholders with Creately’s advanced presentation capabilities. Share an edit/review diagram link with others so anyone can easily access it to monitor the progress.
