Klas Skogmar is one of the world’s leading authorities on how to break down projects, and was one of the few that were part of the ”Core team” in the new ISO standard for Work Breakdown Structures (WBS), ISO 21511. He had been looking for a good tool to work with in his projects, but was not satisfied with any of the existing ones. The idea was first documented in 2014, and the idea was entered into the business idea competition Venture Cup, where the idea shared first place in the first step of the competition. The concept was elaborated, and in 2015 Breakdownstructure AB was founded.
Later that year, the idea got sponsorship from Almi Innovation. The first beta launched in 2016, and in 2017 the first paying customers signed up. We eat our own dog food, so (of course), we are using our own tool for the development of the tool itself!
