There are many project management techniques and methods supported in Microsoft Project. Microsoft Project Do’s and Don’tswill help you pick and choose methods and features that save you time and help you get the most out of your investment in this fabulous tool.
Most project managers have a job or organizational role outside of their project. Juggling both jobs demands a systematic and repeatable approach for success. If you don’t know what you don’t know—or can’t remember between projects—this book will help you identify and prioritize what you need to remember and do to use Project.
Project management techniques can be hard to model in software. I have approached this problem with simple definitions, easy examples, and explanatory screenshots.
Microsoft Project Do’s and Don’ts will be your best friend and guide as you learn Microsoft Project. It was designed with your needs in mind from the very beginning.
I created this book for only one reason: to save Project users from the problems brought about by not following best practices. Best practices enable the tool to better represent your project and its pressing realities in time, work, cost and quality.
The list of best practices is not that long nor is it overly complicated. It is the result of many years of learning and usage of Project on my part sprinkled with the occasional mistake.
Learning what to do and not do in Project has been an integral part of my career, and I hope to save you time and frustration in yours.I encourage you to read the book in sequence from cover to cover.
The Do’s and Don’ts start before you enter your first task and continue through the life of the project and the Microsoft Project file. If you jump around within a given chapter, you might miss an important fact or technique that’s worth knowing.
Enjoy the book and good luck with your projects!
