In this foundational Microsoft skills training, Simona Millham covers how to analyze project information and track progress with Microsoft Project.
There’s a lot of project management software out there, but Microsoft Project is one of the originals. Microsoft Project is a popular tool for managing both project schedules and the resources and costs associated with projects.
This Project training is ideal for project managers brand new to Project. Simona starts with the basics and progresses to advanced features like reporting and even creating custom fields for Agile project management. Even if you’ve been managing projects with Microsoft Project for a while, you’ll likely find a Project feature you never knew existed.
After completing this Project training, you'll know how to analyze project information with custom views and reports so that you can better communicate project problems and progress. You’ll also learn how to use Microsoft Project to create and manage project schedules, budgets, and resources, track progress and identify over-allocations, and work with templates, data constraints, and WBS codes.
