What actually is a WBS (work breakdown structure)?

WBS - work breakdown structure - is a fundamental project management technique based on decomposition of a project into smaller components. It organizes the team's work into manageable sections. It is also called "deliverable oriented hierarchical decomposition of the work to be executed by the project team."

A WBS provides the necessary framework for detailed cost estimating and control along with providing guidance for schedule development and control.
