Course description

Applications of Microsoft Project Scheduling System

Developing a software product, publishing a newsletter, implementing a training program, starting a new business or even building a new home are some of the projects that millions of people embark upon everyday. However many of us simply do not properly manage these projects, nor do we make the best use of the tools and templates designed to help us along the way. That's where Microsoft Project comes in. Used properly it can help you put together a plan of action and fill in and organize all the details that must be completed in order to achieve your goal. From building a new project, tracking progress, analyzing costs, assessing the quality of your project and even managing multiple projects - Microsoft Project is here to help!

The added benefit of this course is the application to your real world projects. Day 2 of this course is devoted to creating templates and plans in Microsoft Project based on one of the projects you are currently working on in your organization. This way you see first hand how to use the program and its features within your business environment. The instructor will be there to answer questions and show examples as you plan your real world project and is available for post-mentoring sessions upon the course completion.

Who should attend?

This course requires a basic understanding of the Windows operating system.
