Microsoft Project is a very sophisticated software for project management. In the Advanced class, we focus on the execution and monitoring of the actual project. Key themes of this class include both customization and tracking.
In Lesson 1, we begin by discussing project execution. Task progress can be entered in one of several ways, depending on how specific your project must be. We also look at revising your project in terms of work and costs, which, unfortunately, is all too common in the real world.
Lesson 2 focuses on monitoring the overall progress of the project. We discuss creating custom fields and views, as well as network diagrams. Overall, we examine different techniques for analyzing the project plan.
Lesson 3 picks up right from Lesson 2, by taking the project plan and building off of it. This means we cover editing and updating the task list. As tasks are updated, you also have to update the Baseline, and this is covered in this section, as well.
Lesson 4 covers reporting, which is made very easy to create by the software. Existing reports, custom reports, and visual reports are all possible in the tremendous clarity and detail you have come to expect from Microsoft.
Lesson 5 focuses on customization, in terms of the project options or creating a template. Often times, resources are shared within an organization, so project complies with this situation by allowing us to pool a list of resources, and we see an example of this here. Finally, linking smaller project plans together makes it easier to see the macro effect that one or more project can have on a company, and this is how we end the class.
