Before you read further, see what my students are saying about my Microsoft Project courses:

  • From an esteemed learner: "I'm a 7-year veteran of the videogame industry and have spent most  professional career working on agile/scrum/kanban development teams.  This course has been a great, cost-effective way for me to broaden my  project management toolbox to include traditional waterfall scheduling  techniques and resource allocation modelling. I will be using these  skills to help plan multi-million dollar development efforts on small to  medium (50-500 person) development teams."

  • "This was probably one of the best online courses I have taken so far, on any subject. I did not have any previous knowledge on MS Project before I started taking the course and today I feel very confident about it." - another esteemed learner

  • "Lecturer not only provides excellent teaching skills, but also provides  so much insight that sometimes you feel he was actually  involved in MS  Project's development itself. Samples, case introductions and other material is  well-prepared and perfectly executed in a systematic order, where pupil  is encouraged to experiment further and work on provided sample msp  files. I highly recommend this to anyone using the software or prepare  for a PMP or similar certificate." - review from an esteemed learner

  • "Full marks - met and exceeded expectation. Gladly recommend to anyone grappling MS Project. The PDUs are a great bonus too" - Leila Barton

"One of the best course ANYWHERE. Thanks instructor for shaping our career" - by Taha Syed

    Important information before you enroll:

    how to download ms project
    Microsoft only allows download through Office 365 portal, which requires a valid registration.
    All the steps to install are on the official Microsoft site, and should be googled for.  URLs and Microsoft offerings are changing on a high frequency as I write this in 2020.
    The whole process is unfortunately complex. You should register first, then log into the Office portal and finally download and install Project.
    FAQ: Can I do this course with MS Project XX?
    ANY which version of MS Project you use, this course will be beneficial to you. I mainly use 2016 standalone (desktop) Project Professional for teaching, but occasionally show the latest UI (only when required). This course teaches logic and techniques universal to all major versions of Project in the market today. There will be about ~10% variation in the UI and minor tweaks, but all the critical logic and techniques will be the same.

    FAQ: How to get help with installation?
    If your office provides Project for you, then seek it from your System Administrator. Else, if you run into issues with the installation, you should seek the help of Microsoft's excellent and live help support system from within the Office portal. And this help is only available through the steps provided in Microsoft's link above. As far as I am aware, this is the only secure and recommended way to get a trial version.

    Project Exercise 1 - A Very Simple Exercise to Start
    In this lesson, we will dive directly into the course by creating our very first simple project plan.

    I will start by firing up Microsoft Project. You will see the splash screen briefly while the software loads up.

    This first screen you see now is called as the "Backstage". And this screen will help you create a new file for your project.
    Project Exercise 1 - Continued - A Dive into Microsoft Project - LEVEL SIMPLE
    Continuing with our 1st Microsoft Project exercise - in the previous lesson, we saw how to create simple tasks. Now, I will take a moment to fill up the rest of the tasks that I have lined up for this plan. And I will do it through the magic of video editing - to save your time!

    OK -  now our plan has 10 tasks all together. You can get all of these docs from the exercise files - and recreate this exercise.

    One simple thing to notice is that Microsoft Project highlights the changes made in the last step with this light blue color - that you can see here. It is nothing but a visual indication to you...
    A fast introduction to all the basics of Microsoft Basics
    Learning Objectives of this Section
    Basic Interface of Microsoft Project
    In this lesson we will first get familiar with the user interface that Microsoft Project offers. Before you start creating project schedules like a pro - it is important that you understand the functionality of the tool itself.
    What are Tasks?
    As you already know, work on any project is broken up into tasks. Insimple terms, you can say tasks are smallest units of work in a project.These tasks are the building blocks of a project’s schedule. In projectmanagement a task is an activity that needs to be accomplished within adefined period of time.
    What are Resources?
    Now we come to the next important concept in Microsoft Project - RESOURCES. To execute any project we will need resources!Resources are typically people included in your project plan. However, a resource could also include anything and everything that is used to complete a project, including, equipment, facilities and other materials (like cement or Web servers or software).Although it is possible to create a schedule in Microsoft Project without assigning resources to the tasks. In the first exercise that we did, we did not use resources - BUT doing so will mean that we can tap into a lot more of Project's capabilities.  
    What are Allocations?
    In the last few lessons, we learnt first what tasks are - and how to create them in your project. We followed that - with the important concept of Resources - and then, we also saw basic types of resources. Now, in this lesson - we will learn how to tie the two together - that is - tasks and resources. When you assign a task to a resource - you are creating an ALLOCATION. This is a simple enough concept but it is very important to understand clearly. When you as a project manager, decide that developer John will code the login page - you are making a task allocation to a resource.
    What are Task Dependencies?
    In this lesson, we will begin an extremely important concept. That is "Task Dependencies". In real life projects, almost every task will depend upon some other task. For example, let us again look at our earlier simple exercise. You can download and use this file - check that it is "Exercise 1 - TASK DEPENDENCIES" file. 
    • Basic proficiency with Windows UI
    • Microsoft Project Trial version can be used (search on Microsoft's Office site) - if you don't already have this
    • Some familiarity with MS Office will make things even easier - but not absolutely required
