Work Breakdown Structure Description:

A work breakdown structure is an hierarchical list or diagram representing all the tasks that must be completed in order to complete the project.
  1. The process involves gathering input from the project team 
  2. Decompose the project into its major elements of work (level 1 categories) 
  3. Decompose each level 1 element into detailed tasks 
  4. The lowest level of the WBS should consist of task which have been decomposed to the point where all recognizable tasks have been identified - AND that it can be clearly actioned. 
  5. Identify task owners, and deliverable for the lowest WBS level 
  6. Estimate the time (H - longest time possible, L - shortest time possible, M - most likely duration) - in days (usually working days - 5 days = 1 week)
  7. Estimate non resource cost elements for each task
