Event description

Description

This fundamental 2-day course provides you with the hands-on skills to plan and manage project activities using Microsoft Project.

You will learn and practice Microsoft Project at a laptop using MSP 2016 provided in-class. The scheduling techniques are learned through a series of progressive exercises that simulate a real project. At the beginning of each exercise, participants load a new project file that contains all the information correctly entered from the previous exercise. As a result, those with slower typing skills are not left behind. By completion, participants will have fully defined a project from beginning to end and will have performed project updates and reporting.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will gain practical skills to:

  • Effectively define a project, enter a Work Breakdown Structure, assign resources and costs to activities, enter project dependencies, set a project baseline, input actual project status, identify resource conflicts, and produce meaningful reports.
  • Use advanced features such as individual resource calendars, custom layout definitions, filters, and the use of custom data fields.
  • Understand both the positive and negative aspects of the software in order to fully understand the applicability of the software for their needs.
  • Discuss real-world issues such as managing multiple projects, sharing of resources, and the efficient use of the software within large and small organizations.
