For this assignment, you will create a Work Breakout Structure (WBS) for your project using Microsoft Excel. As an industry best practice, many project managers will build their WBS using MS Excel to provide a more simplistic view and analysis of the project’s work categories and the “Work Packages.” Once the WBS is approved, the project manager will import the data into the preferred corporate PM Tool. Examples of industry-leading tools include MS Project, Primavera, Clarity, TeamGantt,, etc. you are ONLY required to submit your WBS in MS Excel.
