Find out how
Work breakdown structures (WBS) are an essential component of the project planning process, regardless of industry or discipline. The WBS organizes the project’s total scope while reflecting the work specified—helping practitioners standardize how they track projects and overcome large uncertainties when they arise.
As a comprehensive update to the Practice Standard for Work Breakdown Structures — Second Edition, the Third Edition applies the WBS to the predictive, iterative, incremental and agile project life cycles, while also exploring several different types of decomposition in practice today.
This Practice Standard aligns with other recent PMI Standards, including A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) — Sixth Edition, providing practitioners with an indispensable tool to consistently track schedule, budget, risk and performance, regardless of discipline.
