Successfully managing a project requires discipline. It requires that time, scope, and cost are managed in a way that bring about the completion of specific goals or the project itself. This requires planning and organization. Microsoft Project 2013 can help project managers and their staff organize their projects and meet their goals by acting as a virtual assistant that can produce information, charts, and reports to help the project smoothly advance to completion. This course teaches you how to use Project 2013 to do all of that – and more.

Lesson 1: Introduction to MS Project 2013A good software program like MS Project 2013 can allocate resources, assign tasks, track budgets, and be your right hand as you manage the project from beginning to end.
Lesson 2: Creating and Defining ProjectsProject 2013 can only manage the information about the project that you give it, so it is important to have everything organized and planned before you even start to use the program.
Lesson 3: Entering and Scheduling TasksThe main part of your project is going to be the tasks. The tasks are what will track your project progress from start to finish.
Lesson 4: Project 2013 ViewsA view in Project is simply the way that task and/or resource information is displayed.
Lesson 5: CalendarsIn Project 2013, the calendar shows the various hours in a workday, the days in a work week, holidays, and nonworking days on which a project schedule is based. Project allows you to set Base, Project, Task, and Resource calendars.
Lesson 6: Organizing TasksIn this lesson we are going to discover how to organize tasks to make them easier to manage in Project 2013 and as work commences on your project.
Lesson 7: Working with Task Duration, Constraints, and DeadlinesBefore you enter a duration for a task, you must know the three task types. These types will have an effect on how Project schedules the work of the task.
Lesson 8: Introducing DependenciesA task is either a predecessor or a successor. This means that a task either comes before or after another task.
Lesson 9: Working with ResourcesResources, by definition, are costs associated with tasks. A resource can be a person, equipment, materials, or even a fee.
Lesson 10: Customizing and FormattingIn this lesson, we are going to show you how to format elements of the Project screen, as well as teach you to create customized templates.
Lesson 11: Resource ManagementThe key to successful projects and excellent project management is finding the right resources.
Lesson 12: Communication and Progress UpdatesIt is important that you map out what information you need to track as the project commences and advances.
Lesson 13: Tracking Work in ProjectWhen you want to track the progress being made on a project, you must enter different kinds of information. You must tell Project 2013 when you want to track progress.
Lesson 14: Using BaselinesBy definition, a baseline is the detailed project against which actual work is tracked. It is kind of like detailed plans for your new home before you ever start to build it.
Lesson 15: Running ReportsReports show progress and give you a picture of each element of the project and the project as a whole.
Lesson 16: Printing Project InformationIn this lesson, we are going to do a quick run through of how to print in Project.
Lesson 17: Consolidating Projects and ResourcesNow that we've learned how to use Project to create and manage projects, we are going to talk about pooling resources, consolidating project plans, and assignments so that they can be shared with other projects.
