Event Description

Whether you are a project manager, project planner or a project scheduler, you must have experienced some level of frustration while using the tool. You wish to create a dynamic project but with hours of project schedule manipulation every day, project management seems to be a daunting process. Then, how are you going to build, optimize, manage project schedule and ensure that your project stays on track? Here's help!

Join our software applications expert, Mitzi Katz, for an engaging learning event, Microsoft Project 2010: Best Practices. Learn how to create and apply a custom calendar to correctly reflect working time, enter and link tasks with realistic relationships, assign and manage resources and master techniques for setting up a project, tracking progress and shortening the duration of a project. This conference is available all day on the date of conference.

Here is a taste of what you will learn through our scintillating webinar:

  • Guidelines for Best Practices – an overview of the steps to follow for set up and tracking. Command paths are also included in the guidelines.
  • Project is a highly structured program that runs a database with time and cost calculations in the background. Parts of it may look and feel like Excel, but it does not behave like Excel.
  • Project is a highly customizable program. A user can inadvertently change the major components of the program sometimes without realizing. Customizing and sharing custom components through the Organizer will be discussed.
  • A custom calendar will be created and applied through Project for proper time calculations.
  • Project 2010 has been redesigned. Where did all the commands go?
  • Tasks are now either automatic or manual. How does this affect your project?
  • Preference settings have been changed. Which do you need to consider?
  • Project "gotchas" will be spotlighted as practices to avoid.
  • We will look at both the task side (how to shave time off a project) and the resource side (how are assignments affecting the tasks).

The tendency of an intermediate to advanced computer user is to sit down to a computer program, such as Project, and work their way through it. More than any other Microsoft Office program, it is difficult at best to take this approach with Project. Inaccuracies in data are easy to create and difficult to see. Using this webinar for a quick review of the details to keep information accurate would be a great investment to anyone using Project.
