Project Master class – 2 days

Microsoft Project is the best tool for scheduling projects. However, it is not without its problems. Happily most problems with using Microsoft Project stem from a lack of knowledge of how Microsoft Project works, or just plain lack of scheduling.

If the Business case describes what will make a project successful and why it should go ahead, then schedules communicate the how, when, who and current progress of delivering a successful project. Good schedules are and essential part of good project governance and control. So, as a good project manager, you need to make maximum use of your main information tool: Microsoft project.

The Microsoft Project Master Class takes Project Users who know all the material in typical 2 day Project courses and have at least 6 months experience with using (or trying to use) the either MS Project or another  tool (eg MS Excel) (plenty of time to get into a wonderful mess and accumulate masses of questions) and answers all your questions. The course teaches:

  • How to solve common scheduling problems
