May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
For users of Project Online desktop client (subscription version), this is your chance to learn more about Agile in Microsoft Project. The presenters wrote an entire chapter on Agile features in the latest Microsoft Project Step by Step book (published in April) and have even shared their feedback (both good and bad) through multiple channels at Microsoft. This session will cover both how to use all of the built-in features and how to adapt key features to address what an Agile practitioner really needs. The presenters spent months testing and evaluating various features and will give you their top takeaways.
