Today we are going to learn how to use Microsoft Project. In this section, we will cover the major parts of Project. First, you will need to know how to start Microsoft project, once it has been installed on your computer. It's best to have a general idea of your own project before you begin. In order to be successful, you will need to have a detailed project plan, which includes a breakdown of what you can deliver to your client. Go step by step to from start to finish.

In the last section we covered how to use Microsoft Project. In this section, we'll cover the best practices for learning and using it. There are several basic rules that project managers can use to avoid issues when trying to manage a project schedule. These basic practices are often ignored when working in applications like Microsoft Project, but they can become problematic when you attempt to manage a schedule in a highly visible online environment.

3 lectures 30:05

Gaining knowledge with Project Management can be difficult at times. What you need to do is begin by integrating the components of your project within Microsoft Project and manage it from there. Integration management will be effective if you can gain the support of all team members and, above all, stakeholders. Getting acceptance from the start of the project ensures that we have the support and funding to succeed.

When you think about how to improve your project management skills, it's easy to assume that this will mean more work for you. However, as time is your greatest resource, becoming adept in Microsoft Project will save you time, money and resources as a business owner. It doesn't mean work becomes harder, it means you can work smarter. It can mean delivering projects on deadline, the first time. It can mean streamlining the proofing process, cutting down on the back and forth and actually getting the work done – on budget. Even if you don’t implement specific project management practices, applying project management skills in your own small business can lead to increased employee productivity and decreased costs.

There can be many differences between management and leadership. A common theme between the two is that as your work environment faces change and volatility, leadership is something that is needed. Management involves dealing with the complex, and the obstacles that may arise due to this. In reality, not everyone possesses these skills.

+ Learn The Art And Science Of Managing Projects With Microsoft Project
4 lectures 27:54

When we manage our expectations for a product, certain things need to be taken into consideration. Having a timeline, list of requirements, and notes from conversations with the client can help keep you organized and on task. Share these things with your team members, and keep them in the loop. Set up meetings with your team members, and one with your clients so you can discuss the details and process that will make your project a success.

Some research suggests that in order to compare and contrast the differences in project management groups, is to compare the two different methodologies – PMBOK and SCRUM. The purpose of this research is to compare and contrast two methodologies, PMBOK and SCRUM, and discuss which is the better option  to  use.

Compare And Contrast The Project Management Process Groups

Project management is an art. In this section we will discuss what a project is, and what it is not. Project management is taking an idea and transforming it into a reality. For a given project, constraints are defined, and the project manager is expected to deliver within those constraints. People mainly think about the “triple-constraints” model of scope, cost, and time, but there are actually six constraints to consider – Quality, time, cost, scope, risk, and resources.

Explain What A Project Is (And Is Not)
08:21

The project initiation phase is the first phase within the project management life cycle, as it involves starting up a new project. Within the initiation phase, the business problem or opportunity is identified, a solution is defined, a project is formed, and a project team is appointed to build and deliver the solution to the customer. A business case is created to define the problem or opportunity in detail and identify a preferred solution for implementation.

When building your team, consider your relationship with them. If you know who they are, if you've worked with the previously and if that experience was a positive one. Building these relationships is just as important as the relationships you build with your team members. If you have worked with them previously but the experience was poor and unpleasant, consider that you need to go back to the beginning and start building a relationship with them once again before you can engage them in the project.

Monitor And Control The Project Activities

You must cultivate a good work and learning environment to allow those skills to build and grow. You need to make sure you do this with the right people. If you don't, you'll end up wasting time with extra meetings trying to find the right people for your project. Make sure you represent all your clients in one meeting. Make sure their needs for the project are discussed so your team members understand what needs to be done the first time it is discussed. If you have chosen the right people for this, you won't have to deal with any resistance down the road with bad leaders. Remember to choose wisely who will handle each section of the project.
