Project Management

IT System Development Project Plan


Topics: Work Breakdown Structures (WBS)

This template complies with the following industry standards:

  • PMI’s (Project Management Institute) practice standard for work breakdown structures. This standard is based in turn upon the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and supports a deliverables-based WBS.
  • CMMI (integrated capability maturity model). This is an integrated software/systems engineering process improvement model. This model is particularly strong in project management practices area at Level Two.
  • MSF (Microsoft Solutions Framework). This defines the high-level development phases and decision points between them.


You will find all the instructions embedded in the notes for the summary level task for the project. The color-coding is explained as well as the modular structure of the WBS. This template is modular (separate files for the master project, development sub-project and testing sub-project) so that multiple project managers can contribute without losing or re-keying any information.
