Planning Work Packages

While planning your work, breakdown it into work packages. Within a project environment, the work breakdown structure displays what has to be constructed.

Benefits

For user

It is normally difficult for users to imagine the functionality and features of the new system. The work breakdown structure shows the make up of the output which is to be constructed.

For Planner

This is very useful for discussions with non-technical users.

It encourages the planner to think through all of the work packages that are to be produced before committing the time and resources to their construction.

It also helps to identify areas of lack of understanding of what is to be produced.
