Microsoft Project 2013, 2 Days Virtual Live Training in Halifax
Microsoft Project 2013 is a powerful tool for creating and managing projects.
The 2013 version includes several new features as well as some improved ones.
Microsoft Project (or MSP) is a project management software program. It is designed to assist project managers in developing plans, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing budgets, analyzing workloads
Microsoft Project 2013 can be the go-to tool in your project-management toolbox. This course explains how to use Project to build schedules (which we’ll generally call plans) complete with tasks and resources; use the extensive formatting features in Project to organize and format the plan’s details, track actual work against the plan, share status, and take corrective action when things get off track.
Create plans at the level of detail that’s right for your project. Work with summary data initially, or shift to a more detailed approach when it’s convenient.
Any one can attend this training
- Control or what tasks Project can schedule automatically or that you’ll schedule manually.
