Scope Statement, Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), and WBS dictionary
This week’s focus is on project planning, which includes writing a clearly defined project scope statement, and then creating a WBS. Use thescenario, required reading, and Weekly Lecture as the basis for this assignment.
- Create a clear scope statement for the Cool Widgets training project. Ensure your scope statement is specific, clear, and succinct to anyone who reads it (even to someone outside your project team). Review the scenario and see pages 121 to 123 in your text for more information on creating a good scope statement.
- Open the in Microsoft (MS) Word.
- Add your name (as the project manager).
- Enter today’s date. All project documents need to be dated. The projects status is a moment in time.
- Add the scope statement you created from the scenario.
- Select the overall status color and write it where indicated.
- Include the elements that are completed and any issues discovered in the appropriate areas in the template.
- Use the Snipping Tool (Links to an external site.) or other tool to capture the relevant portion of the MS Project work breakdown structure (WBS) you created in this week’s lab, and copy and paste the WBS into the appropriate area in your Project Status Report.
- At the bottom of the report, create a WBS Dictionary.
