IT Training | Microsoft Project | Summary

Microsoft Project is a project management software program which assists project managers or a project team developing plans, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing budgets and analysing workloads. It also is also possible to easily show risks or issues within a task or project. This program has a few bugs and analogical processes but with PCS’ experienced expert trainers, a difficult process can become very simple and easy to understand.

There are many simple wizards with Project that can actually create some bad practices if not shown all the pit-falls. Using this program correctly will make planning a project feel like using a crystal ball to forecast future tasks or plans.

Title: Simple Projects
Course Code: ITP01 | Duration: 1 Day | Level: Introduction Part 1
  Course Description: This course starts with an overview of the whole program explaining why it can be used as a Project Management tool. The Wizards within Project can be simple to use but can lead to bad habits being formed. If a project is going to be set up and used as a tool for planning and tracking, then the rules have to be set up correctly. This course will provide a plan using a Gantt Chart by creating Calendars to show how tasks can be linked to each other. Once a Project has been created properly the next step will be how to track and report its progress.
