MS Project Training in Sheffield

Microsoft Project has been with us now since the 1990’s and has undergone a number of changes in that time. The latest version, MS Project 2010 is arguably the best incarnation yet with it’s Ribbon menu system and a number of useful new features.

However, the Ribbon has certainly not been without it’s critics and not just in respect of Project, but across the whole of the Microsoft Office suite. Much of the criticism stems from unfamiliarity and when users get used to the new layout, many report that the experience is an improvement on the old menu system. This is where training can help. Just 1 day onsite at your own offices is sufficient to become proficient in MS Project, including all the new features. We deliver Microsoft Project training at Foundation & Advanced levels and can provide you with a quick tick-box Training Needs Analysis form to assist you in choosing the correct level for your needs.

Onsite MS Project training courses can cost as little as £55 per person depending upon group size. This is a huge cost saving when compared to the average public course which would normally be in the region of £250 per delegate. For more information or to book a course please use our contact page.

How to Link Tasks Correctly in Microsoft Project

There are a number of traps that new MS Project users often fall into, with the result that the effectiveness of the software is severely restricted. One issue that frequently causes problems is the entering of data into the Task Sheet. At first glance it would appear that we need to enter start and finish dates for each task. However, this is exactly the wrong tactic as doing so causes constraints to be applied to the plan. Of course tasks need start & finish dates, but these are arrived at in Microsoft Project by determining task dependencies and then linking them appropriately.

There are 4 dependancy types:

  • Finish to Start
  • Start to Start
  • Finish to Finish
  • Start to Finish
Combining these dependencies allow project managers to link tasks together and produce an accurate, flexible plan of the project. Understanding task linkage is one of the key skills required in becoming a proficient MS Project user. If you would like more information about the training options available please use our contact page.

MS Project remains the tool of choice for many project managers, but are you getting the most out of the software? Microsoft Project is notoriously difficult to teach one’s self, due in part to the somewhat counter-intuitive task sheet. Many PMs are still entering start & finish dates because there are Start & Finish columns. However this is exactly the wrong thing to do as the action causes a constraint to be applied, seriously limiting MS Project’s ability to reschudel should the need arise.

If you feel there may be gaps in your, or your employees Microsoft Project knowledge base, contact us for more details on how we can deliver a training course at your own offices, or arrange a suitably convenient public program.
