Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)


Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)

In a 4-  paper, address the following:

Synthesize insights on health care organizations’ support for and conduct of project evaluations and project team debriefings.

Compare your insights from the articles with information from project management literature about project evaluations and team debriefings. Be sure that the comparisons you make are clear to the reader.

Explain how your insights into these aspects of project management will impact your ability to successfully manage health care information technology projects.

Include insights on how the use and non-use of formal project management could impact the success of health care information technology projects. Use literature sources to support your perspectives on this topic.

Provide a conclusion that synthesizes key points from the analyses and comparison.

Task Dependencies

Once a project’s deliverables have been identified and diagrammed in a work breakdown structure, the next step is to subdivide each deliverable into smaller components that represent the specific work that needs to be performed in order to complete the work package. These defined activities can then be sequenced. This sequence of activities provides the basis for the project schedule. By including these details, schedules enable project managers to monitor and control project activities, assess how delays will affect a project, and determine how to allocate excess available resources.

For this Assignment, you use the example from this week’s Discussion to construct a schedule in Microsoft Project.

To prepare:

Review this week’s media presentation on scheduling resources and activities.

Recall the example you presented in this week’s Discussion.

Consider the tasks and dependencies identified.

Think about how you would sequence the tasks, and dependencies, for the example.

Consider tasks and dependencies that might be modified to create the most time-efficient project schedule.

To complete:

Submit the following:

A schedule created in Microsoft Project for the example from this week’s Discussion. Include the following:

The dependencies related to the tasks outlined in your schedule

Identification of each dependency’s type

An explanation of how the tasks and their dependencies were modified to expedite the project schedule.
