Project Management Using Microsoft Project

Duration 2 days

Cost $382.50

This seminar is intended for new project managers, but experienced project managers will also discover useful and tactical approaches to schedule development. Previous training and experience in Project Management will enhance the learning process.

Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops with MS Project installed since most of the training will be interactive. If participants do not have a copy of MS Project installed they can download a trial version for use at the seminar and purchase it later. Persons who cannot bring a laptop with MS Project will need to share with someone who does.

If you are going to manage a project, you need a mechanism to forecast and track progress. Microsoft Project is an exceptionally powerful tool that supports schedule management, cost management, resource management and forecasting capabilities for budget and time estimation.
