This course is a three-day introduction to Microsoft Project. It is designed for learners who have had a significant need for structured planning of scope, resources, time, and cost in a project environment. AMSP introduces students to the MS Project environment, navigation and option setting within that environment. The class also deepens understandings of the establishment of scope elements in a Work Breakdown Structure arrangement, time constraints, resources of varying types, and the elements of cost on a project. This is a hands-on course using student laptops with MS Project – the instructor will demonstrate techniques being taught and then assist the students as they practice the techniques. The students prove and deepen their skills with a comprehensive case study that is followed from scope development to execution tracking.
