Using SharePoint for Project Management

SharePoint makes project management easy for any user who needs to collaboratively manage a project or participate in a project team. It empowers both the novice and experienced user to handle everything from the lightest projects, using the new project site template and features, to the more sophisticated management of enterprise portfolio projects, integrating SharePoint with Project Server. It can provide any project manager with an easy, efficient way to coordinate resources, track tasks, manage team members and communicate with stakeholders about projects—in real time across their organization.

This hands-on, lab-intensive SharePoint project management training course will help guide you through a real-world approach to managing projects and project information with SharePoint. You’ll use SharePoint as a project management information system (PMIS), including developing SharePoint project sites and team sites, working with out-of-the-box SharePoint functionality for managing project-related information, building document libraries, integrating Microsoft Office and Project Server software, building workflows and much more.
