    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

    This program 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 - 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 - Tracking, EVM and Visual Reports

    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.

    Project - Customise Projects

    This program 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.
