Nowadays, most software is easy to use, and MS Project is one of the most user friendly out there. Unlike many other scheduling tools, you don’t need a user manual to begin utilizing the main features of MS Project. However, when get a little further into using MS Project to manage your first project, it has the potential to throw you off guard. In fact, I’ve found that the software can do its own juggling behind the scenes. As a beginner, you may be left wondering what’s happened.

It’s true, MS Project is an easy to use software, but to exploit its potential power, you need to understand how it handles data behind the scenes. Otherwise, it can give you unexpected results.

In this session, you will learn step by step how to create a proper project schedule. The webinar is designed for MS Project beginners, but I believe intermediate users will also find it useful.
