This is the club’s first summer tournament handled by Nicolette, where WBS would facilitate the evaluation of cost estimation, scheduling and resource allocation on the project.
Members discussed how to screen teams, entry fee they should charge and also the need of quickly contacting colleges to use their fields. These can be some main important tasks where WBS enables her in sequencing of tasks and priorities.
There was a discussion on injustice in the soccer field and whether to reward winning teams with medals or trophies. These can be important quality issues which Nicolette can track down and find solutions by using a WBS.
