2 Day Starting out with Project Course

MS Project workshops can be delivered in-house for up to 6 delegates.  In these circumstances we will work with you to develop a course outline that fits the requirements of your business.

Project is it's name and projects is what it does. Microsoft Project is professional project management software. It will help you as a project manager to organise your project plan, track and manage the resources, manage the budget and track progress.


Project isn't part of MS Office Product Suites and comes at an additional cost. However if you're a project manager, or project management forms a big part of your role, it may well be worth the investment.


You can manage complexities of a project, produce gant charts, create schedules, add task dependencies and much more.  Let us help you understand whether Project would be a sound investment for your business and then help you get the very best from it.
