Using Microsoft Project 2007 for Project Planning

Course Details

Planning a project without planning software is like learning to drive without a car. Planning software enhances your ability to prepare and track projects. It also allows you to record and translate working days into calendar dates, which spreadsheet software can not do. Furthermore, you can assign multiple resources to a task, calculate costs based on assigned works, and roll costs up to the summary tasks and project level. The planning software that has become standard in many organizations is Microsoft Project. To use Microsoft Project 2007 well, you must learn the discipline of project planning as well as the actual features of the software. This course will accelerate your understanding of planning and tracking a project successfully. Learning to use Microsoft Project properly gives you a key career skill that can open the door to project management positions. There is no prerequisite for this course.
