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 course teaches participants how to use these advanced tracking techniques.


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


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.


  • Set up the building blocks to facilitate using EVM
  • Create a robust Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
  • Use advanced tracking techniques to capture actual performance
  • Analyse progress using EVM.

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 - Customise Projects

    This course examines 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.

    Project - Create, Resource and Track Projects

    This course highlights the concepts of project management and introduces Microsoft Project’s key features of how to set up a schedule and a resource pool, how to assign resources to tasks and how to track a project.

    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 - Complex or Multiple Projects

    Learn to work with multiple projects and to split tasks and share resources. In this course 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 course.
