Mastering Project Management Tools (so they don’t master you)

PDU Category: Technical

Synopsis. Scheduling tools, status reports, and sponsor/stakeholder meetings are too often a source of pain and frustration that PMOs and project managers dread. What if you could turn that around and use these PM tools to control scope creep, manage resources, identify and resolve issues and risks before they become a problem. We will show you how you can automate your processes using standard PM tools so that the majority of your time is spent working with your team instead of preparing data and explaining why things weren’t going the way you planned. The dreaded meetings would be a lot more fun and useful!

This presentation is focused on the technical aspects of Project Management. We will use Microsoft Project to demonstrate how to minimize scheduling problems, manage resources, proactively identify risks and create metrics that your sponsors and stakeholders will appreciate.
