Event Description:

Many, many times we see that project timing and project resourcing are managed in MS Project, while project finances are kept in Excel. Using the financial governance capabilities in MS Project is often an unexploited area. This is a waste, because only adding rates to resources will already bring you half way. MS Project can calculate anything for you directly from your schedule.

In this webinar we will show you how to get the financial part of your project in MS Project, by building on what you already have in your schedule. We will show you how to enter a project budget for main cost types, compare planned cost against actual cost, predict eventual cost at project complete based on actual progress, we will discuss the built-in financial reports, and examine earned value metrics to qualify the project’s performance.
For any proficiency level, the only thing you need is the will to automate work and save time!
