Description
This course is designed as a one-day, hands-on workshop to teach delegates more advanced functionalities of Microsoft Project. Microsoft Project is a powerful Project Management tool which can be used to develop a plan, create tasks, assign resources, manage budgets, and analyse workloads so that you stay organised and focussed. It can be used in a variety of industries including construction, manufacturing, local government, retail, financial services, and healthcare

Outcomes
The outcomes of this course for delegates are

  • Familiarity with more advanced functionalities of Microsoft Project
  • Learning how to use Project effectively day to day
  • Be able to assign and manage resources, add actuals and monitor the project schedule

Applying the skills learnt in your own organisation will require the features to be available in your organisation.  This course covers what is possible with applications within Microsoft Project, but many organisations limit access for security & compliance reasons
