Episode 132 PREMIUM: Best Practices in Structuring your WBSLast week, Josh Nankivel, PMP and I looked at some basics of the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and we identified how it will help you make your project better.

However, one of the biggest issues that you will be faced when using a WBS on your project is that you need to first create it. And as you are creating it, you will need to answer the following questions:

  • How do I structure the WBS?
  • Do I include internal work?
  • What about phase 2 and 3 of the project… how will I include that?
  • Do I present it graphically or as a simple list

These are the questions that Josh and I are discussing. And at the conclusion of the discussion Josh tells us his favorite way of creating a successful WBS.
