I agree, and I am too often amazed at the lack of any form of WBS I see on some projects.
Unsurprisingly, these are projects that tend to under-perform the most.

I've just published a new article that takes a detailed look at the WBS.

Work Breakdown Structure 101

Hope you find it useful.

Thanks,

Thanks!

A very, very useful article as it actually explains from a 'how to' perspective.

Thanks for your feedback Nick.

After reading this topic, I wanted to write something practical and not too 'text book'. Sounds like objective achieved.

What is the difference between a product breakdown structure and a product-oriented work breakdown structure?
