Project managers today must work within tight schedules, changing scope and limited resources. If utilized appropriately, Microsoft Project is a powerful tool that can help you break a project down into manageable parts, define a realistic schedule, identify required resources and track projects accordingly.

In this presentation, you will learn how to leverage Microsoft Project by properly:

  • Defining project schedule based on a project start or finish date
  • Utilizing relevant project calendar
  • Identifying tasks and dependencies
  • Entering task estimates based on duration, work or resource
  • Outlining resource availability and task assignments
  • Tracking project actuals against project baseline information
  • Creating reports for stakeholders
