How do I make a WBS?
A WBS starts with the root element (a box) representing the project as a whole.
Once the root element is defined, we can think about what major delivereables must be produced for the project to succeed and we create an element (or box) for each one of these major deliverables as a child of the root element. This represents that the project (the root element) is composed by the deliverables beneath it.
Then, we define the minor deliverables that must be produced in order to produce each major deliverable and so on. The minor deliverables (or more detailed ones) must be children of the major deliverables representing that the major deliverables are composed by the minor deliverables.

The WBS is considered finished when we look at it and see that all the project deliverables are there, which means, nothing is missing.
