Microsoft Project 2010 Workshop


Share |

Summary:

Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote A successful project is one that comes in on time, within budget, and meets established quality standards. Every project manager knows that effective management of tasks and events is vital to a project, from inception through completion. Many project managers have begun to rely on software tools to assist in the management of their projects. MS Project is a project management tool that facilitates assembly and tracking of projects, and enables project managers to quickly reconfigure plans as needed. Because of its sophisticated functionality, MS Project has become one of the most widely used project management tools.

It is said regarding chess: it is easy to learn to move the pieces, but difficult to learn to play the game well. This is also true of MS Project.

The thing that differentiates our course is that we teach people what goes on "under the covers." That is, we teach people how tasks are formed in MS Project and how they relate to tasks as they define them in the real world.

The result is our course goes a long way towards eliminating the frustration of creating and maintaining a plan in MS Project by reducing many unexpected consequences of seemingly logical actions users make.

Also, a portion of the workshop is devoted to the capabilities of MS Project Server and the potential benefits of using it as opposed to the stand-alone version.
