This course covers the critical knowledge and skills a project manager needs to create a project plan with Project during the planning phase of a project. In other words, if your supervisor assigns you to lead a project, this course will enable you to draft a project plan with Project and share it with your supervisor (and others) for review and approval.
In addition, this course covers the advanced knowledge and skills a project manager needs to update a project plan in Project during the execution, monitoring, and controlling phases of a project. In other words, once your project plan is approved by the project sponsor, this course will enable you to manage the project so that it is completed on time, within budget, and according to scope.
This course is taught using Microsoft 2016 software but it is applicable to users of Project 2016 and 2013. Instructors will note any features that are exclusive to 2016. Some additional options were added 2016 such as new options to secure resources, collaborate between the resource manager and the project manager, and show heat maps of resource capacity. These are more advanced features that get little coverage in this course, making this an excellent introduction for users of Project 2013 or 2016.
