BACKGROUND
Manchester United Soccer Club (MUSC) was
created in 1992 in Manchester, New Hampshire
(USA) to bring recreational players to a higher
level of competition and to prepare them for the
State Olympic Development Program and/or high
school teams.
The Board of Directors of MUSC decided to
organize a summer soccer tournament to
generate revenue.
MUSC regularly competes in 3 4 tournaments
every summer.
These tournaments have been reported to
generate between $50,000 - $70,000

BACKGROUND (Continued)

In her role as the Tournament Director of MUSC,


Nicolette was tasked to organize the clubs first
summer tournament.
She proposed a committee brainstorming
session which ended up being a free-for-all of
ideas and suggestions with no prescribed
format
Upon discussing the happenings of the meeting
with her husband, she was advised to create a
Work Breakdown Structure for the Tournament

PROJECT OBJECTIVES
To organize a soccer invitational tournament to raise
revenue.

This revenue is to be used to :


Refurbish and expand the number of soccer fields
Augment the clubs scholarship program.

QUESTION 1

Make a list of the major deliverables for the


project and use them to develop a draft of
the work breakdown structure for the
tournament that contains at least three
levels of detail.

What are the major deliverables associated


with hosting an event such as a soccer
tournament?

MAJOR DELIVERABLES

QUESTION 2

How would developing a WBS alleviate


some of the problems that occurred during
the first meeting and help Nicolette
organize and plan the project?

Question 2:
How would developing a WBS alleviate some of the problems
that occurred during the first meeting and help Nicolette
organize and plan the project?

Developing a WBS will help Nicolette define all the


aspects of the tournament in a hierarchical
framework that will help determine the cost, time
and resources required of each element of the
project
With this information, Nicolette can plan, schedule
and budget the tournament as well as assign
responsibilities to members of the committee
This framework would help structure and coordinate
subsequent discussions/meetings as there would be
clear guidelines and topics to follow (i.e., no more
free-for-all discussions that end 30 mins late)

Q QUESTION 3

Where can Nicolette find additional


information to help her develop a WBS for
the tournament?

Question 3:
Where can Nicolette find additional information to help her develop a WBS for the tournament?

Internet

From previous soccer tournament hosts


(e.g., clubs, school teams), local soccer
associations/organizations, local referees,
retired players and other football experts

Soccer Books, Magazines, News articles

QUESTION 4

How could Nicolette and her task force use


the WBS to generate cost estimates for the
tournament?

Why would this be useful information?

Question 4:
How could Nicolette and her task force use the WBS to generate cost estimates for the tournament?
Why would this be useful information?

The WBS breaks down the deliverables into small work


packages (or activities/tasks) that can be assigned
costs. These costs can be rolled up or summed
together to determine the cost estimate of the entire
tournament.

Because the main objective of the tournament was to


raise funds or to generate revenue, the cost estimates
would be helpful because they would help Nicolette and
her task force know whether they made a profit or not
(Profit = Revenue Cost)

RECOMMENDATIONS

Define the Project Scope of the tournament


using the Project Scope Checklist
Establish the tournaments priorities
Create a WBS
Integrate the WBS with the Organization to
create the Organizational Breakdown Structure
(OBS)
Code the WBS
Use a Responsibility Matrix to assign specific
responsibilities to the committee members
Create a Project Communication Plan
