The fundamental mission of a project is to create value for the client, by way of meeting the specifications for the deliverable of the project, which in turn will satisfy a specific strategic objective of the enterprise. The planning documents of the project include the specifics of crafting the deliverable itself, as well as proactive guidelines for involving the stakeholders in the decision processes of the project. Planning the project will begin with a clear understanding of the client’s strategic and financial objectives. Then, on the basis of that information, and in the light of historical data from similar projects, estimates will be made for the amount of resources required for the project, the total cost of the project, the total duration of the project, and risks that might impact the implementation and success of the project. The skeletal framework for project plans will be provided by a hierarchical structure, which is called the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). Although the WBS can be developed using activities or resources, the most logical method for developing the WBS is the deliverable basis
