WebnLearn: Update Better
Wednesday, March 13, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
The way most PMs update task progress, there is no effect on successors or product delivery date. You will see a way that gives more and better information for managing a project and communicating with sponsors. This presentation shows the techniques described in the MPUG December 12th article, "Update Better." You'll also hear how to convince your organization to upgrade updating.
You will upgrade from entering %-complete to using techniques that affect the task's Finish date, prompting any recover decisions throughout the project. You will gather better status information and will configure Microsoft Project for rapid, easy updating.
