Planning is fundamental to the success of your project. It’s vital the execution of the plan is tracked, monitored and controlled. Microsoft Project allows you to take a snapshot of the project plan, to capture actual performance and to compare actuals against the baseline. From this you can analyse the progress and status of your project and forecast the project performance using a technique called Earned Value Management (EVM). This program teaches participants how to use these advanced tracking techniques.

Overview

This program focuses on how to analyse project progress using an advanced technique called Earned Value Management (EVM), and to report on that progress using PivotTables and PivotCharts in Excel and Visio – called Visual Reports.

Pre-requisite

Participants should have completed the following programs or have equivalent skills:

  • Project – Complex or Multiple Projects
  • Project – Level Resources and Link Data
  • Project – Project for Schedulers.

Program Content

  • Understand the building blocks of EVM
  • Create a robust Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
  • Create a baseline against which to track actual progress compared to planned progress
  • Use advanced techniques to capture actual performance
  • Analyse progress using EVM
  • Use Visual Reports.

Learning Outcomes

Participants should be able to:

  • Set up the building blocks to facilitate using EVM
  • Use advanced tracking techniques
  • Analyse progress using EVM
  • Report on progress using Visual Reports.

    • Project - For Schedulers

      A vast majority of projects that suffer cost and time overruns (overruns that are not due to external dependencies) do so because they lack professional scheduling. Professional scheduling means understanding the agreed scheduling method such as Critical Path Method (CPM), and efficiently using a scheduling tool to build the schedule model. It also means tracking the variance between planned versus actual performance and deriving suitable metrics.

       
    • Project - Create, Resource and Track Projects

      Do you need to keep track of projects? Then Microsoft Project can help you. Learn about the concepts of project management and become familiar with the Microsoft Project terminology. Find out how to track projects, create schedules, allocate resources or costs and prepare simple reports. If you use computers but don't have much experience with Project or are new to Project, this program is for you.

       
    • Project - Level Resources and Link Data

      This program focuses on how to automatically resolve problems with resources who have been allocated too much work. It also covers how to exchange data between Microsoft Project and other applications such as Excel and Word.

       
    • Project - Complex or Multiple Projects

      Learn to work with multiple projects and to split tasks and share resources. In this program you will manage project schedules, format reports or project views and customise the Microsoft Project environment. If you are familiar with Project, but have problems applying it to your specific project needs or if you need to resolve project difficulties, you will benefit from this program.

       
    • Project - Customise Projects

      This program examines on Microsoft Project’s ability to store custom data and to prepare the data for presentation to clients and other stakeholders using customised views and reports.
