Course Overview

Project managers are often tasked with maintaining complex or multiple projects and require the ability to share resources and performance data. When the scope or volume of projects does not sustain the investment in Project Server, managers can leverage Microsoft Project Professional as a standalone solution.
This course provides the skills to manage multiple or complex projects with Project Professional. You learn to create cross-project links, develop shared resources, and track and report status across multiple projects.

 

Objective:

  • Leverage Microsoft Project Professional tools and techniques in a multi-project environment
  • Reorganize large or complex projects into master and subprojects
  • Optimize resource assignments across projects and resolve over allocations
  • Track schedule, completeness and budget on complex projects and for distributed teams
  • Connect project managers, teams and data across the organization
  • Integrate third-party applications to facilitate data sharing and accessibility
