What is the Structure of Parent Task


Structure of Parent Task is a framework of identifiable and measurable elements that define the type, content, and form of work to be performed to do the parent task. These elements serve as the major parameters for decomposing the task into simple operations or child tasks and defining hierarchical interdependent relationships (dependencies) between child tasks.

The structure of a typical parent task includes the following elements:

  • Objectives: a measurable result to be achieved upon task completion
  • Skills definition: types and number of skills required for employees to do the task
  • Input requirements: materials and information required to begin the task
  • Tool and technology: any technological solutions, equipment and tools required to support the task
  • Deliverables: tangible, measurable and observable outcomes of the task
  • Quality checks: a series of activities to inspect and evaluate the task’s quality
  • Exit/Completion criteria: special criteria that determine whether the task has achieved its objectives

These structural elements of a parent task create and define dependencies between related sub-tasks.
