Event Details

Event Description:

This unique three-session event being presented by Larry Christofaro of EPM Solution Partners will provide the opportunity for you to be a part of a training series that will bring you to a new level of managing resource constrained projects. Each attendee should bring your laptops with Microsoft Project and be guided through building and tracking a project that develops an integration between Project Server and an invoicing system.

The resource leveling feature of Microsoft Project provides the best solution for managing resource utilization across project tasks. You will learn how to create, plan, and manage a project using the full power of Microsoft’s flagship scheduling tool. This series will show how you can spend less time tracking your project, while attaining improved resource capacity planning over any other method available.

There is an old Chinese proverb: “Tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand.” Log in with your PC and Microsoft Project, and understand what it takes to properly plan and track a resource constrained project.

Due to the cancellation of our February event, we will be finishing this series at your March event. You will use and leave with sample schedules and job aids that will guide you through the entire process. 

AGENDA

SESSION TWO: March 21, 2014

  • Level resources and respond to results
  • Baseline your project
  • Update project progress
  • Re-plan your project
  • Respond to project and resource changes
  • Project reporting
  • Closing your project
  • Managing resources across programs
  • Using resource leveling with Project Server

PRE-REQUISITES AND RECOMMENDATIONS

  • This series is designed for Project Managers who are experienced in using Microsoft Project (i.e. understand task predecessors, constraints, resource assignments, utilization, etc.). We will use these features to properly plan and manage resource constrained projects.
  • Microsoft Project 2013 will be used during the session. The majority of features that will be shown are available in all Microsoft Project versions, but the instructions and process can best be followed using Microsoft Project 2013 or 2010.
  • File formats for Microsoft Project 2010/2013 and Microsoft Project 2007 will be provided. You must be able to open one of these formats to follow along. Please note that although Microsoft Project 2007 file format will be provided for older versions, it will be the responsibility of the user to transpose the ribbon-based menu commands to the appropriate toolbar commands in Microsoft Project 2007.

 

Learning Objectives: 

During this event, the attendee will learn how to create and plan a resource constrained project using Microsoft Project’s resource leveling feature.
