OVERALL

As the project management environment increases in complexity, project scheduling tools have become indispensable. We need dynamic project models that manage complexity, identify slippage and support alternatives.

  • A good schedule
  • is a valid, dynamic model of a project.
  • is a smart simplification of the complex reality of the project
  • is valid if it reflects the reality of your project and provides reliable forecasts
  • updates itself when changes are entered, not disturbing the validity of the schedule

 

BENEFITS

For individuals:

  • Understand and apply basic project management concepts for planning, executing, controlling and closing of Ms Project schedules.
  • Understand that a schedule is a valid dynamic model of a project.
  • Be able to create and optimize dynamic schedules in order to meet deadlines and budget restrictions while keeping resources workloads under control.
  • Update the schedule effectively and efficiently and being able to continuously create forecasts on costs, dates and resource assignments
  • Use Earned value management with Ms Project in a dynamic way
  • Create and maintaining effective reporting and views on your dynamic project data.

For organizations:

  • Creates a common language that will help to establish common processes for dynamic project scheduling.
  • Shows best practices that will help your organization to move toward a singular methodology of scheduling.
  • The guidelines are universally applicable to projects of any size, industry and complexity

THE TRAINING IS FOR YOU IF

  • you currently use Microsoft® Excel as your primary project management tool
  • changes happen so frequently in your projects that it’s hard to keep up with them
  • you want to have the possibility to explore what-if scenario’s with Ms Project
  • you want to gain a deeper understanding of Ms Project
  • you want create schedule simulations for quantitative risk analysis
  • you want to roll up dynamic subprojects into master projects

AFTER COMPLETION YOU WILL BE ABLE TO

  • Initialize Ms Project to start project planning
  • Create a well-formed project schedule, including WBS, estimates, dependencies, constraints, deadlines, and calendar use
  • Assign resources and costs to tasks
  • Understand task types and the schedule formula
  • Analyze resource utilization
  • Set a baseline
  • Track progress
  • Apply Earned Value Management
  • Create project reports and analyze project, resource, and task data
  • Customize and format Ms Project views and fields
  • Manage multiple projects

WHAT WILL YOU GET?

  • professional trainer that is certified in the method and applies it in his day-to-day work – no theoretical approach, but practical hands-on
  • The latest version of the handbook Dynamic Scheduling with Microsoft Project
  • A binder including the training materialscase studies and exercises
