This training is not focused on teaching you Microsoft Project like other programs. This training is focused on teaching you how to build and manage a project schedule using Microsoft Project. Sounds like the same thing, right? Well I am sad to say that it isn't.
Most Microsoft Project courses teach you how to use Microsoft Project. You learn what the file setting options are. You learn how to create a task or milestone. You learn how to set a date constraint. You learn how to baseline a schedule. These are great skills, but you don't learn how to actually build a project schedule that covers the total scope of work. You don't learn how to organize the schedule and how to make it easy to navigate through so that you can use the schedule in meetings or to generate reports. You don't learn how to actually build a schedule. You only learn how to use Microsoft Project.
That's where this training program starts to stand apart from others. In our training, you will learn how to build a project schedule using Microsoft Project. You have to understand project management and project scheduling principles. After all, project scheduling is an area of project management. So you will learn how scheduling supports the project management process. And you will learn how to organize your schedule so that it does cover the total scope of work by using a Work Breakdown Structure. You will learn the file settings that I use on a daily basis. You will learn standard naming conventions for your tasks and milestones. You will learn how to build task relationships using a concept I call 'perspective'. You will learn how to apply date constraints and deadlines effectively. You will learn how to make your project schedule easy to navigate so that you are able to show the right information on your screen at the right time without scrolling through hundreds or even thousands of tasks. You will learn how to build and maintain an effective project schedule using Microsoft Project. And you will be learning these skills from an expert that is still working as the Lead Scheduler for a multi-billion dollar IT program. So you can be confident that you are learning from someone who knows the struggles that you face on real-world projects.
