Microsoft Project Do’s and Don’ts: Set Up For Success

Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs):
This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDUs in the Technical category of the Talent Triangle.

Event Description:

When creating a project for the first time many project managers begin by typing information in the “Task Name” column. Later they find that Microsoft Project is calculating working time incorrectly. Task dates begin to look inaccurate and the Project duration begins to change. Finally, they may even abandon the use of Project in managing their project. The problems began with the first data entry. Project was not set up correctly for data and so errors ensued. Project is like other database applications in that the correct set-up and configuration of the software will drive accuracy.

In this webinar, we’ll explore and discuss the basics in setting up and configuring Microsoft Project for data. We will identify the features you need to know such as calendars, calendar hierarchies, scheduling methods and scheduling modes.
