Work Breakdown Structures: The Foundation for Project
Management Excellence

Description:    The book the reader through the Project Management Institute's Work Breakdown Structure
                (WBS) Practice Standard and explains and illustrates using examples, how to successfully
                implement the WBS process. The authors are uniquely qualified because they wrote the PMI WBS
                Practice Standard - they are also well recognized as experts in the development and use of a WBS
                across a number of industries. The book presents a "user's guide approach" by walking through
                the entire WBS process from start to finish. To do this a single project was used to convey the
                information to the broadest group of individuals - a home remodeling project. Using this project as
                a backdrop and supporting it with numerous illustrations the reader will gain a thorough
                understanding of a WBS and its importance to the successful completion of any project. Co-
                branded with the Project Management Institute this guide will become one of the most important
                resources on a project manager's bookshelf.

                The new standards from the Project Management Institute (PMI) provide guidance and universal
                principles for the generation, development, and application of the Work Breakdown Structure
                (WBS). Created by the experts who wrote the PMI WBS Practice Standard, this handbook explains
                what the standard covers and how to go about successfully implementing the WBS process from
                start to finish. An included CD contains examples from the book, presentations describing the
                applications of the content, as well as example documents, matrices, and forms.
