Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs):
This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Strategic category of the Talent Triangle.
Managing a project involves managing data – lots of data – and it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important. What if you could build a business intelligence dashboard to help you manage projects more effectively? And what if you could do it in less than 30 minutes by using software that you already have?
Whether you’ve used Visio for years or have never clicked the program icon, you may not be aware that you can use it to build project-related dashboards. In this session we will explore ways to measure and visualize team members’ progress toward project goals. We will turn flowcharts into dynamic process reporting tools. And we will build a project timeline, all using Visio.
Finally, we will tie all of those diagrams together by publishing them to SharePoint in a way that allows anyone – with or without Visio – to view your dashboard.
