What is Microsoft Project?
Microsoft project is one of the most widely used project scheduling tools. It significantly improves the management of project schedules, resources and costs and streamlines the production of project reports. It enables project managers and planners to produce high quality project schedules, reduce and cost plans. Many project managers start by drawing a project schedule in PowerPoint or Excel, but they soon find that it is difficult to maintain and track progress without a properly constructed project schedule. Microsoft Project enables project managers to take their planning to the next level.
Why do Project Managers Need Training in Microsoft Project?
Microsoft Project is an extremely powerful and flexible project management package, with many options and features. These features make it capable of supporting a wide range of projects from the smallest to the most complex. Initially this can seem daunting for the new user, with too many choices. At the best this results in wasted time during project mobilisation, at the worst it leads to an unworkable or unachievable project plan. The latter could result is significant issues for the project team as the project progresses. Effective training can reduce this time wasted and improve the quality of the project schedule.
