WBS 2 Abstract This document details the Work Breakdown Structure for Project Child Save. Each section describes more clearly the processes, procedures, and activities that must be followed and accomplished to make this project a success. The Work Breakdown Structure is clearly defined with goals and milestones added to each phase. Critical path activities are discussed in more detail and how this project team will manage these activities will be discussed in detail by the project manager. The document concludes with a contingency plan if the total amount of money is not raised.

WBS 3 Introduction Braxton to insert info here be sure to insert WBS, critical paths, managing critical paths, and contingency plans into the thesis of the intro Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) “is largely a planning tool” and “is used to aid in monitoring and controlling projects” (Meredith & Mantel, 2012, p. 235). The WBS for this project is listed in Appendix A. Upon further review, you can see that this document is divided into phases (discussed here) and critical activities (discussed in the next section). Each phase must be completed before the next phase can begin. It is crucial for project success that each member completes the described activities in the WBS. Each team member is responsible for collecting and contributing a minimum of twenty-five dollars per phase (phase two through five; totaling $100 for each phase). The responsible party listed next to each activity in the WBS determined their own method to achieve the outreach method and donations required for the phase to be successful. To ensure WBS’ accuracy, all members involved must review the WBS and agree to the work that needs to be done and if the project is on track (Meredith & Mantel. 2012). To fulfill the need for accuracy each phase has team meetings where successes, scope review, and donation updates will be shared to track the project’s success. More information will follow on how the Project Manager will manage critical path activities, milestones, and misses for each phase. Critical Path Activities Each team member has agreed to critical path activities, that once completed, play a crucial role in the success of this project team reaching its goal of a $400 donation to Project Child Save. These critical path activities are tasks that must be completed in a specific order for

WBS 4 the project to be successful. Outlined in Appendix A is the WBS for this project. Each task listed has a responsible member and a date in which each task is due. This project is broken into phases. Phase Two through Phase Five represent the bulk of our efforts to raise the capital required for donation. Each member has a specific outreach task that needs to be completed to deliver on the $100 donation per phase (Phase Two to Five) to reach the goal of $400 donated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
