Brochure creation is a great example of a simple project that can benefit from some simple work breakdown planning. This WBS in MS Project format includes general scheduling and dependencies, plus notes on the potential scheduling conflicts they raise.
What this is
This Microsoft Project file for creating a publicity brochure includes a work breakdown structure, general scheduling and dependencies. The schedule, while basic, runs from design to distribution, and includes notes on potential scheduling issues and tentative resource assignments.
Why it's useful
A good brochure isn't necessarily complicated to produce, but it isn't something you should just throw together. This WBS demonstrates the value in doing a work breakdown for even simple projects. In this case, the project covers just a few weeks, but the WBS illustrates some key scheduling issues (designated with notes). If you've ever been put in charge of this supposedly simple project, or if you just want to get a high-level view of what might be required before you assign it to someone, this file will provide a great example.
How to use it
Double-click on the file icon to open up the embedded Microsoft Project schedule file, then save it to your hard drive. Review its WBS structure, resource allocation, estimates, etc. for ideas for your own project's work breakdown and scheduling. Edit it to create your own template if desired.
Note: You must have Microsoft Project installed in order to edit this file. If you don't have MS Project you can still view the file using one of the many MS Project viewers on the market. (Google on "Microsoft Project viewer" for scads of possibilities.) You may also want to look into Microsoft's 60-day free trial offer.
