Work Breakdown Structure

A work breakdown structure (WBS) is a chart in which tasks are illustrated to portray their relationships to each other and to the project as a whole. WBS helps you analyze and divide your project into work packages and dependencies by providing a common framework for the natural development of the overall planning and control of a project. It is a very useful kind of management infographic.
The graphical nature of the WBS can help a project manager predict outcomes based on various scenarios, which can ensure that optimum decisions are made. A work breakdown structure element may be a product, data, service, or any combination thereof.
