PRINCE2 Planning and Control Using Microsoft Project

PRINCE2 Planning and Control Using Microsoft Project

by PaulE.Harris (Author)


This book is designed to teach people how to use Microsoft Project in a PRINCE2 environment and identifies which PRINCE2 processes may be managed with Microsoft Project. The book is based on Microsoft Project 2003, but may be used with Mircosoft Project 2. The book is aimed at PRINCE2 Practioners and Project Managers in any industry who are using Microsoft Project in a PRINCE2 environment to plan and control their projects. A user guide written for Project Management Professionals who wish to learn how to schedule projects in a single project environment with or without Resources in a PRINCE2 environment. The book is packed with screen shots, constructive tips. It contains workshops with solutions at the end of each chapter for the reader to practice the skills taught in the chapter. This book was written for people learning to utilise Microsoft Project in a PRINCE2 environment. It describes which PRINCE2 processes many be managed with Microsoft Project. This book shows the user how to plan and progress projects created within the software package to an intermediate level and stays focused on explaining how to use Microsoft Project to plan and control projects by: concentrating on the core functions required to plan and schedule a project in a single project environment; providing command lists at the start of each chapter as a quick reference; showing practical ways that Microsoft Project may be used to manage programmes, portfolios and projects in a PRINCE2 environment; and providing a comprehensive index of all topics. This publication is ideal for a person who would like to quickly gain an understanding of how the software operates and explains how the software differs from SureTrak and P3 thus making it ideal for people who wish to convert from other products. The book was written so it may be used as: a self teach book, or a user guide/reference book. As a project controls consultant I have used a number of planning and scheduling software packages for the management of a range of project types and sizes. The first books I published were user guides/training manuals for Primavera SureTrak, P3 and Microsoft Project users. These were well received by professional project managers and schedulers, so I decided to turn my attention to developing a book for PRINCE2 Practitioners using Microsoft Project. This book follows the same proven layout of my previous books. I trust this book will assist you in understanding how to use Microsoft Project on your PRINCE2 projects.
