Initiating The Project – Problem Set 8
Work Breakdown Structure Exercise
Instructions are contained within the attached template.
WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE WITH ACTIVITY LIST
Instructions: You will use the Week 2 Business Case project to complete the WBS Structure with Activity List exercise (copy and paste the Business Case as usual). During Week 7 you identified six (6) Key Deliverables that were required to complete the project within scope. For this week’s exercise you will identify three (3) activities that need to be completed to create the overall Key Deliverable. (See Exhibit 8.3 on page 251 for an example). The textbook does not need to be cited or referenced in this exercise.
This should be a checklist of items that need to be completed to ensure that the Deliverable is completed and the Acceptance Criteria is met. SMART criteria must be used. Do not try to identify three (3) Activities to complete the entire Deliverable just provide three (3) that would be part of a potential full list.
* Another example using the construction of a fence around the field from last week:
2. Erect Fence Post (Key Deliverable)
2.1 Dig round hole 3-foot-deep with circumference of two feet
2.2 Fill hole with concrete up to 6″ from top of hole
2.3 Insert 8′- 4” x 4” wooden fence post into the center of the hole leaving 5′ of post above top of hole
2.4 Use level to ensure wooden fence post is plumb
2.5 Once concrete has set fill last 6″ inches of hole with dirt. *
