Creating the Work Breakdown Structure (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

In order for projects to be successful, a project manager must use planning techniques that define project objectives in sufficient detail. Projects can quickly get out of control if the project plans aren't detailed. A project's work breakdown structure (WBS) provides the foundation for defining work as it relates to the project objectives and breaking it down to an adequate level of detail. The WBS also provides a structure for managing the work to completion. This course will highlight the importance of the WBS and how it relates to the overall success of a project. Through interactive learning strategies and real-life scenarios, the learner will explore these concepts and gain a better understanding of the project management processes related to creating and verifying a WBS. This course will cover the project inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs of the Create WBS process, the fourth process in the Project Scope Management Knowledge Area. This course will assist in preparing learners for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), Inc., 2013.

  • recognize how to organize a work breakdown structure
  • identify the purposes for which a work breakdown structure is used in project management
  • identify the inputs used when creating a work breakdown structure (WBS)
  • order the steps of the decomposition process
  • identify the attributes of a usable WBS template
  • identify the factors that influence the first level of decomposition for a project
  • determine the degree of decomposition to apply to examples of projects
  • identify criteria for determining whether work packages are sufficiently decomposed
  • identify the roles that identifiers for work breakdown structure elements perform
  • identifying the work package characteristics that are confirmed during WBS verification
  • identify the purpose for having control points in a WBS
  • identify the sign that a work breakdown structure has been finalized
  • identify the components of the scope baseline
  • recognize the role of each component of a project's scope baseline
  • identify the role of the WBS dictionary in a project's scope baseline

Project Requirements and Defining Scope (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Good scope management focuses on making sure that the scope is clearly communicated and well defined and that the project is carefully managed to limit unnecessary changes. Project scope management is concerned with ensuring that projects include and account for all the work needed to ensure the successful completion of a project. Successful project managers use project scope management throughout the life of a project to identify and control all aspects of the work involved. This course will highlight the importance of project scope management to project performance. Through interactive learning strategies and realistic scenarios, the learner will explore these concepts and gain a better understanding of the inputs to, the tools and techniques for, and the outputs of the Project Scope Management processes. This course covers all the activities related to planning scope management and developing a project scope statement. Specifically, learners will be introduced to the first three processes in the Project Scope Management Knowledge Area – Plan Scope Management, Collect Requirements, and Define Scope. Learners will be introduced to best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide - Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013.

  • identify the purposes of the project scope statement

Monitoring and Controlling Project Scope (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

A project manager's key responsibility is to ensure that the project is carried out in a controlled manner, according to plan. However, a project can quickly spin out of control if changes to the product's scope are not detected and managed properly. Two processes in particular enable a project manager to do just that: the Validate Scope and Control Scope processes. They belong to the Project Scope Management Knowledge Area and play a key role by helping to monitor and control the boundaries of the project throughout the project life cycle. This course will cover the project inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs of the scope management processes that deal with validating scope and controlling changes to a project's scope baseline. Through interactive learning strategies and realistic scenarios, the learner will explore these concepts and gain a better understanding of the monitoring and controlling processes of the Project Scope Management Knowledge Area. This course will assist in preparing learners for the PMI® certification exam.

  • recognize the role of each input to the Control Scope process
  • identify the details that would go into a change request, given a project scenario in which there is a scope change
  • recognize examples of outputs of the Control Scope process
