Have you outgrown Excel for planning and tracking your projects..?
Do these challenges ring a bell for you and your team..?
- We are using Excel, to build project plans and the information has become too unwieldy in multiple spreadsheets to update and use in a timely manner..
- I need to quickly build project plans, using repeatable detailed project templates with predefined resources how can I achieve this more easily?
- I need to update our teams plans with current progress and for dates to reforecast easily in order to more accurately understand downstream impact or delays..
- We need to visualise milestones for executive level presentation and discussion without having to constantly move date information from Excel to PowerPoint..
Microsoft Project 2010 – an overview
A one day interactive workshop
Wed 23rd January 2013 in Leeds
only £125 + VAT
This overview provides an opportunity to see and to try out the techniques that Microsoft Project adds to the project manager’s toolkit. If you are using the Microsoft Office suite of Apps such as Excel to plan your projects , the progression into Microsoft Project is intuitive but without a little help and guidance can be quite daunting at first glance. So join us for one day and let us introduce you to how Project plans quickly and easily.
- Breakdown Structures (WBS) – Why use this technique?
- The Critical Path – Why is the Critical Path important?
- Planning within limits – How to plan with limited resources, time and budget.
- Baselines and progress monitoring – Is the project on track?
- Communication – Publishing plans and progress.
Note – Microsoft Project is extensive and whilst a 1 day overview will not cover all features and capabilities in depth, it will provide an insight into what it can offer in a more formalised project management environment following further training.
