Microsoft Project

A complete guide to using this software tool to help project management & reporting

During this introductory hands-on course, delegates will learn how to utilise Microsoft Project to assist in the planning, monitoring, maintenance and control of projects.  In addition they will also understand where Microsoft Project as a tool, fits within the management and support of a project. Crucially, we also cover recent developments where Microsoft are gradually moving more functionality away from the Desktop, and onto a web-based service, that can be consumed by Apple and Android tablets and smart phones.

This course is run on a private basis and each delegate needs to have access to Project Pro, the desktop app.  In addition, it would be nice, but not critical, if each delegate also had access to both Project for the Web (The Power Platform app) and Project Online (the SharePoint app). Both these products are covered in the course, but if delegates do not have access to one or both of them, the trainer will simply demonstrate the products.
