This 1-day instructor-led course will familiarize participants with the basic features and functions of Microsoft Project so it can used effectively and efficiently in a real-world environment. This course covers the critical knowledge and skills a project manager needs to create a project plan with Project during the planning phase. In other words, when assigned to lead a project, this course will enable a learner how to draft a project plan and share it with management (and others) for review and approval. Note: also see related Project 2019: Part 2 as a great "bundle" option to review.
This course is designed for a person with an understanding of project management concepts and who is responsible for creating and maintaining project plans. The course will give the student a fundamental understanding of Microsoft Project necessary to create and save project plans. Note: this course is for anyone who has Project on the desktop, regardless of whether they purchased an “on-premise” edition or subscribed to a “cloud-based” (online) edition. Most project managers and project team members use the desktop application, so that is the main focus of this course. The main features of the online app are presented in an appendix.
