Webinar: Update Better

Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs):

This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Technical Category of the Talent Triangle.

Event Description: 

The way most PMs update task progress, there is no effect on successors or product delivery date. You will see a way that gives more and better information for managing a project and communicating with sponsors. This presentation shows the techniques described in the MPUG December 12th article, “Update Better.” You’ll also hear how to convince your organization to upgrade updating.

Learning Objectives: 

You will upgrade from entering %-complete to using techniques that affect the task’s Finish date, prompting any recover decisions throughout the project. You will gather better status information and will configure Microsoft Project for rapid, easy updating.

  2. I echo Martin’s comments. Have you done something similar for those who schedule by work rather than by duration?

    In addition to the tracking of Actual Work in “Update Better” have a look at several MPUG webinars in the “Scheduling” section. At the top of that section is my April 15, 2020, MPUG webinar, “Analogous and Parametric Estimating Schedule Template.” It adds another feature to Microsoft Project: continuous improvement of estimating data based on tracking using Actual Work inputs. Clicking on that webinar, leads to a download of the template, narration, and presentation. The template has three custom views for initially getting template data, scaling to estimate a future specific project, and improving that data.
