Effective Use of Microsoft Outlook for Project and Time Management

Getting team members on the same wavelength, channeling their energy, and keeping them on track to finish on time takes meticulous planning and execution. However, everyone wants to work smarter, not harder when it comes to increasing productivity.

In the planning and execution phase of projects, Microsoft Outlook is a valid and valuable tool. There is no need to purchase additional, expensive project management software. The first step is to evaluate how your team members are using Microsoft Outlook. If they are using Microsoft Outlook mainly to send and receive email, they are leaving about 85% of the power of Microsoft Outlook unused.

If you would like your team to be more productive and keep on top of their project deadlines, sign the entire team up for this webinar by expert speaker Karla Brandau. They will learn the secrets of making Outlook a tool for exponential productivity and your unit will gain company-wide recognition for completing projects on time. Your team will be able to keep the project moving down the tracks at a steady speed and finish by the deadline.

This session will discuss how the Inbox and Calendar folders work in tandem with the Task folder, overcoming hurdles that delay projects and creating a methodical way to meet deadlines. With Task folder features, you, as the project manager, can receive up-to-date information on the status of completion for assigned tasks for each team member.

The session will provide hands-on training as you will be able to use two screens or toggle back and forth between the instruction and your own computer.
