Microsoft Project 2019/2021/365: Part 2

Welcome to Microsoft Project 2019/2021/365: Part 2. This course is designed to familiarize you with some of the advanced features and functions of Microsoft Project so you can use it effectively and efficiently in a real-world environment.

In Microsoft® Project® 2019/2021/365: Part 1, you learned the basic features of Microsoft Project during the planning phase of a project. This course covers the advanced knowledge and skills a project manager needs to update a project plan in Project during the execution, monitoring, and controlling phases of a project. In other words, once your project plan is approved by the project sponsor, this course will enable you to manage the project so that it is completed on time, within budget, and according to scope.

Note: This course is for anyone who has Project on the desktop, regardless of whether they purchased an “on-premise” edition or subscribed to a “cloud-based” (online) edition. Most project managers and project team members use the desktop application, so that is the main focus of this course. The main features of the online app are presented in an appendix. This material will benefit users of any current version of Microsoft Office, and of the Microsoft Project desktop software. The classroom environment setup uses the Project 2019 desktop software.

This course is the second part of a two-course series that covers the skills needed to gain a foundational understanding of Project.
