Guided Tour - step 6 of 13

Create the project's work breakdown structure

You should never start constructing a schedule for your project before designing a proper WBS; this is considered to be a poor practice.

To put it in simple words, a WBS (work breakdown structure) is a decomposition of a project into smaller components (preferably deliverable-oriented). The WBS is neither a project plan nor a project schedule (and itís not about a chronological listing of projectís tasks).
To create the WBS you should first identify the projectís major deliverables. You should then decompose those deliverables into smaller components until they are small enough to support definition of the activities. .
