Microsoft Project

Microsoft Office version 2013, 2016 & 365

Deliver on time and under budget with Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project is a unique workshop that allows you to keep close track of your project progress - and deliver your promises on time. Attend this fast-paced 3-day workshop – and get the confidence you need to organise and manage resources – easily and effectively.

'The impossible can be delivered immediately – miracles take slightly longer.'

The key outcome of any project is deliverability – preferably under time and under budget. In order to facilitate this sometimes mammoth task, you need to be able to stay on top of your game at all times – and that means managing resources, knowing your project progress, balancing your budget and so much more.

This unique 3-day programme will equip you with the knowledge you need in order to fully utilise the powerful offering that is MS Project – and make a roaring success of any project you tackle.
