Project management is the process where you lead a work team to achieve all project goals within the given constraints of scope, time and budget. Usually, a project document, that is created at the commencement of the development process, provides all the project related information. A challenge one may encounter is needing to optimise and allocate resources to meet all the predefined tasks. So, can a software program help in project management? You will learn about all the critical functionalities of MS Project in this tutorial. You will begin by understanding the key functionalities of tasks, predecessors, options and calendars. While learning about the features of MS Project, you will also get familiar with some important project management concepts such as critical path, work breakdown and cost analysis. You will learn how to categorise tasks and assign milestones. The tutorial progresses with the help of explanatory videos focussing on just one tool or functionality per video for easier understanding.

Next, you will be introduced to several tools, options and functionalities to show how MS Project can create budgets based on tasks assigned and resource rates. Can resource information be shared between projects? Can you assign a resource to multiple tasks? Can MS Project customise the programme to meet the different project needs and demands? The tutorial will answer these questions and more as you learn about the key functions of ‘View’, 'Task’, ‘Project’, and ‘Resource’ menus. A project team has to complete a project within the established timeline and budget. The tutorial will explain how the software program can be used to add constraints, link/unlink and update tasks, synchronise how your team members can collaborate on a project and analyse the project cost and resources. You will get familiar with the management tools that are used to track the progress of a project and learn how to navigate through the program for answers.
