WBS and schedule (in MS Project format) created for planning an event, to ensure no important elements are overlooked.
What this is
This Microsoft Project schedule for planning an event includes a work breakdown, general scheduling and dependencies. The WBS runs from conceptualization to event wrap-up.
Why it's useful
Whether it's a wedding, an awards ceremony, a bar mitzvah, or a community fundraiser, events offer a great opportunity to implement reasonable planning, or to overlook important tasks. Whatever the scale and purpose of your event, this high-level WBS and schedule can help you get a head start on your planning activities, so you can be confident you aren't leaving anyone out or leaving anything important to chance.
This isn't a one-size-fits-all event plan, but it's pretty close. It provides a solid baseline for thinking ahead and making decisions about your own special event. Draft information about dependencies and constraints is also included, illustrating how a plan evolves from pure WBS to full-blown baseline schedule.
How to use it
Use your favorite unzip software to extract the Microsoft Project schedule file and save it to your hard drive. Review its WBS structure, resource allocation, estimates, etc. for ideas for your own trade show 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.
