Microsoft Project

Fundamentals, Features and Techniques
There are hundreds of project management software products in the market today. Unfortunately, many people who own the software have no idea how to use it. It is important to understand basic concepts of project management, such as creating a work breakdown structure, determining task dependencies, and so on before making effective use of this software. Many project teams still use spreadsheets or other familiar software to help manage projects. However, if you can master a good project management software tool, it can really help in managing projects. Built on a hands-on curriculum, this course teaches practical, proven techniques for managing projects using Microsoft Project.
 

You will learn how to;

  • Create project plans at the level of detail that’s right for your project.
  • Work with summary data initially or shift to a more detailed approach when it’s convenient.
  • Control what tasks Project can schedule automatically or that you’ll schedule manually.
  • Manage tasks, costs, work, and resources at whatever level of detail is appropriate for your project’s needs.
  • See your project plan data in a variety of views. Apply grouping, highlighting, sorting, and filtering to see your data the way that you want.
  • Track and manage your project plan throughout project execution.
  • Collaborate and share data with others in your organization using a variety of productivity applications.
