In conjunction with Microsoft, we recently delivered a collection of high-impact tips and tricks to a wide and varied audience of Microsoft Project users in Wellington, NZ.
We received some excellent feedback from the attendees, so we'd like to share these tips and tricks with you. We've broken down the delegate handouts into three parts; following a typical project's lifecycle.
- Project preliminaries
- Harmonise your times and dates
- Categorise your costs
- Planning the work
- Manage the project’s structure
- Understand task durations
- Link it all together
- Reviewing the schedule
- Use more than one table
- Let Microsoft Project highlight schedule changes
Parts 2 and 3 will be published in successive blog posts. Just click on this link to download the part 1 handout in PDF format.
Notes for Project Mentor users
Within the handout, you'll see links to various Lessons and References. Just lookup a lesson or reference for step-by-step instructions or detailed explanations about each of the tips and tricks listed.
