Course Description

Microsoft Project 2007 is a project management software that helps project managers better structure, organize, and plan for all their projects.   This includes budgets, tasks, resources, assignments, and everything in between. It can create critical path schedules, generate budgets, and create detailed reports on whatever aspect of your project you want to view. If it relates to managing your project, Project 2007 can help you do it.

The purpose of this course is to introduce Project to users and to teach them the features they need to learn in order to successfully be able to use this software for small or large projects – or any size between. Microsoft Project 2007 is a large software program and can seem complex to someone who has never used it before or has limited experience. However, the basics of the program are easy to learn and, once you've learned the basics, mastering the advanced techniques becomes quick and simple. It's safe to say that this program can easily become a project manager's best friend because it makes the hard work and headaches of managing a large project a lot easier.

Whether or not you've used a version of Project before, this course starts out with the basics so you're never left stumbling and confused.   In the beginning, you'll learn how to navigate through so the look and feel becomes familiar. Then, we'll move on to the features and teach you how to apply each feature to your projects.   When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills to use Microsoft Project 2007 to assist you in managing all your projects.

Course Lessons

  • Lesson 1: Introduction to MS Project 2007

    If your company has a project that needs to be completed, you're going to want to make sure that every aspect of it is organized so that it goes efficiently and according to budget.
  • Lesson 2: Creating and Defining Projects

    When you want to start a new project, you have two choices. You can either create a new project using Project Guide or start from scratch by entering information on the default opening screen as shown below.
  • Lesson 3: Calendars

    In MS Project, 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 4: Organizing Tasks

    In the last lesson, we learned how to create tasks. However, if you just created a long list of tasks, managing these tasks could get very daunting. Your task list should serve as an outline for your project.
  • Lesson 5: Working with Task Duration, Estimates, and Dependencies

    Whenever you create a task, you have to set the duration for the task, or how long it will take to complete. However, before you enter a duration for a task, you must know the three task types.
  • Lesson 6: Working with Deadlines, Constraints, and Task Calendars

    Of course, when you have a project, you're going to need the project to be completed by a certain date. With that, you'll have deadlines for tasks so that each aspect of the project runs smoothly and on time.
  • Lesson 7: Working with Resources

    So far in this course, we've mainly talked about tasks because these are the elements that drive your project forward. However, in order to complete tasks, you need resources.
  • Lesson 8: Customizing and Formatting

    As with any Microsoft software program, you can customize and format different elements to give them the look and feel you want, or to tailor them to your own needs.
  • Lesson 9: Resource Management

    The key to successful projects and excellent project management is finding the right resources. What makes a resource right for your project will be based on a couple of contributing factors.
  • Lesson 10: Tracking Progress

    We've mentioned baselines already in this course. Now it's time to actually learn what a baseline is and how to use it in Project. By definition, a baseline is the detailed project against which actual work is tracked.
  • Lesson 11: Running Reports

    Finally! You've done it. You've taken the time to enter all your tasks, create dependencies, enter your resources, and assign your resources to tasks Now you get your reward for all that work. Now you get to run reports.
  • Lesson 12: Printing Project Information

    You can print any information that you have in your project. This includes the various views. In this lesson, we're going to do a quick run through of how to print in Project.
  • Lesson 13: Consolidating Projects and Resources

    Now that we've learned how to use Project to create and manage projects, we're going to talk about pooling resources, consolidating project plans, and assignments so that they can be shared with other projects.
