About the Presentation

A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is the foundation of any project schedule. Creating a meaningful WBS separates actionable project schedules from simple to-do lists.  While every project manager should already use a WBS as part of their schedule creation, Matthew re-introduces WBS as a meaningful, value-added tool in organizing your project schedule, defining project and solution tasks and activities, and establishing ownership and measurable definitions of complete.
