After introducing or reinforcing the necessary Project Management concepts needed to properly manage projects in real-world environments, the workshop focuses on raising the participants’ skill and speed in the use of Microsoft® Project. Not a “button pushing” class, the workshop addresses those areas within a project where the software can help the Project Manager to plan, organize, track and control project schedules, estimates, deadlines, costs and associated resources.
This workshop also addresses a multitude of features such as the startup options, Timeline and Backstage, top-down scheduling options, tracking of multiple baselines, enhanced reporting capabilities, as well as a host of other real-world functionality.
Upon completion, participants involved with PMI® and the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Professional (PMP®) program, are awarded 8 PDUs or 8 “Contact hours”
Instructional methods for this program include lecture, discussion, question and answer sessions, as well as extensive individual hands‑on exercises. All participants receive the course workbook, handouts and sample files for on-the-job reference and use.
