Practical Project Management Using Microsoft Project
2 day course
This course provides an industry-standard tool to assist in the scheduling of projects, a tool which can be of great assistance at various stages within the project life cycle.
As a result of attending the course, you will be able to create more robust project plans, which will ensure that risk is adequately taken into account and that potential problems are identified and communicated before projects start. In addition, potential resource problems will be identified and avoided or corrected and more realistic project costs determined.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS COURSE?
The principal aim of this course is to put into practice, using MS Project, many of the concepts covered in our other project management workshops. By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- create a robust, risk-weighted project plan;
- ensure that a more realistic project budget is set;
- identify and avoid or correct potential resource problems;
- communicate plans at multiple levels and in different forms;
- manage projects during execution, identify and communicate the early signs of change;
- pass lessons learned from one project into others
