Evidently, similar to any other task or rather project, the above sequence of events ought to top happen subsequently and dependent on each other. From the above Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), the main objective of the project been analysed herein is to essentially Move headquarters of the Coca Cola Company from Atlanta, GA to Dallas, Texas.

One event leads to another and it continues that way all through till the entire project is accomplished. It is easy for one to discern all the activities that are related owing the fact that the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) simplifies it by essentially showing a flow of activities and time schedule for each (Haugan, 2002).
