Microsoft Project is a powerful scheduling tool used to support project teams on small, medium and large projects. The course is designed to give you confidence in setting up, managing, tracking and reporting your project schedule.
In addition to delivering projects on schedule and within budget, today’s project teams must reduce time to market and cope with rapidly shifting conditions. Microsoft Project is a powerful tool to help you break projects down into manageable parts, identify potential bottlenecks and generate information to keep your projects under control. This is a structured but informal course with opportunities to ask questions relating to your projects.
This one day course is aimed at: project administrators, project co-ordinators, project planners, project managers, programme managers and pmo managers, or anyone else interested in managing dynamic schedules, tracking resources and monitoring costs.
