Showcase this hands-on experience in an interview
In this guided project you will learn how to build a WBS for your project. You will decompose your project into the main elements, then further decompose those into even smaller, more manageable pieces of work. As we decompose our project into smaller elements, we will be using decomposition rules such as the 100%, and the mutually exclusive elements rules. You will continue decomposition until you get elements that can be estimated properly and that you can delegate to a person or a team. You will also create a WBS dictionary, explaining the elements in your WBS. We will do all of this in Google Sheet, but the same concepts can be used with any tool, i.e. Excel SP, WBS creation tools, etc. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Sign in your Google Drive account, or create one, and open a new Google Sheet
List the major components and subcomponent of your project
Select a structure for your WBS, that works for your project and that is compliant with any Standard used in your organization
Organize the major components of your projects into the structure selected and decompose them into subcomponents
Review your WBS for correctness, completeness, consistency, and clarity
