Welcome back to the county. A project plus P K +0004 This is your instructor, Kimberly Lario.
00:07
Now we're gonna go into the next stage, all the projects Lifecycle project planning.
00:14
What are we gonna be learning through this stage?
00:18
First, we're not learn how to identify the different planning outcomes.
00:23
I know what a word that work breakdown structure is and how it helps us in the project plan.
00:32
So again, looking back on the approach of life cycle that we mentioned earlier, the planning stage follows the initiation stage, and he's followed by the execution of monitoring stage as a reminder.
00:45
The execution of monitoring stage do provide feedback to plan and stage and the Benjamin how the project is executed or during the execution. There may be reasons to go back to the planning board and make changes and readjust if the if the outcomes or the
01:04
different milestones are not being reached
01:07
in the proper way.
01:10
So there's something we will have to consider,
01:15
So planning is something that is required on any project.
01:21
So what are we gonna be doing during the planning stage? First, we have to find the sculpt statement if you remember, the scope is the breath or the
01:32
the actual activity that we will be concentrating our efforts on.
01:38
We will identify 1% the different resources that will be needed.
01:42
We will organize the work and distribute the different tasks and activities in the staff. There's gonna be executing them.
01:51
We will also define the different ways to validate the delivery bols that each task for activity will Jerry. And finally we are going to have the ability to control change.
02:05
This is something that we will discuss further down as well.
02:09
So the sculpt statement. It includes all the components that make up the project and the intended result off the projects or these components.
02:20
It contains a description,
02:22
the acceptance criteria key, the liberals and exclusions.
02:28
Now, together with the sculpt statement,
02:30
we have the work breakdown structure and he's the one, a very interesting deliverable, that it's
02:39
displays in a hierarchical fashion. How the project is pulled together,
02:47
the world bring down structure. Hell's by
02:52
the composing our scope statement into the different tasks that we will be performing
02:59
Breakdowns breaks down each deliverable. It creates smaller packages
03:05
that are easier to handle and defines each work package. So let's take a look at what work breakdown structure will look like.
03:15
This example. We have the project.
03:17
The project has different tasks in this case. Task one through three.
03:23
Each task may have different sub tasks, and each sub test will have one or more war. Great, they're down structure packages.
03:32
This package is are the actual items that produce a deliverable.
03:38
If the work package 1.1 dot one is completed, sub tax 11 has been completed.
03:46
Now, if some tasks 1.2 and 1.3, enough completed
03:53
task one is not completed.
03:54
So the number off tasks, some tasks and packages are depending upon how the scope or the plan have Bean described. What are we intending to
04:10
if we were to take example off cooking and maybe making a sandwich? Ah, hot sandwich or a grilled cheese sandwich?
04:19
Definitely. We need to have the bread, the cheese,
04:24
the toaster
04:25
and we need to do things in certain a certain sequins, in order for us to go from bread, cheese and toaster separate to ending weighs a grilled cheese sandwich.
04:39
No, you're imagining how more complicated could get if you start speaking about eggs, scramble eggs, sunny, side up or any other count, all that place into how the sequence and how each task will be broken down.
04:57
Also, there's something called the W. B s Dictionary. The word breakdown structure dictionary
05:02
is basically a way of spelling out what the war breakdown structure is aiming to do. And it's not dictionary in the way that we may, understanding that we describe a word and explain its purpose. This dictionary
05:18
for each task, it explains the purpose.
05:21
The resource is the costs, the expected quality requirements, the acceptance criteria, how it will be a vehicle. I've waited approved
05:32
contracts and information of other contracts as well as who is responsible for each test.
05:43
Finally,
05:44
we are being of this section.
05:46
What have we learned? We have learned what the planet faces and, most importantly, how key the word breakdown structure is and how much of a role, because he lays out what the scope intends to do in a way that could be measured and that he could be, um,
06:05
assist in valued.
06:09
Well, that's all for now. I will see you in our next presentation

Up Next

CompTIA Project+ (PK0-004)

The CompTIA Project+ course take students through a project’s lifecycle, introducing them to the knowledge and skills that are required to collaborate in project environments. Upon Completion, students will be prepared to pass the Project+ certification exam.
