Task 2: Create the work breakdown structure with the team by deconstructing the scope, in order to manage the scope of the project.

This task takes the information gathered about the full scope of work to be done on a project and develops the WBS using decomposition to develop a graphical representation of the work to be done on the project. By completing a WBS for a project, a project manager can double-check that all the work required on the project scope has been captured and accounted for; and can also more accurately estimate time, cost, and resources required to complete work.
