A work breakdown structure or WBS in project management is a method for completing a complex, multi-step project. It is a technique of dividing and conquering large projects to complete them more quickly and efficiently. A work breakdown structure is intended to make a large project more manageable. By breaking it down into smaller chunks, work can be done concurrently by different team members, resulting in increased team productivity and easier project management. As the project manager, you must ensure that all critical input and deliverables are gathered and prioritized transparently. To show the hierarchical outline of importance and connectivity between the tasks required to complete the project, you can use Gantt charts, flow charts, spreadsheets, or lists.
