Microsoft Project is the market leading tool for managing projects and working with project data.  It has a compelling business case for any organization using Microsoft Office.

Like Word, Excel and PowerPoint, anyone who has worked with Microsoft Office can start the program and navigate around a bit.  Unline Word, Excel and PowerPoint, the amount of knowledge regarding the concepts and dependencies is logarithmically greater, which is why most organiztions provide training prior to beginning a project.

Using Microsoft Project will not teach you about managing projects —actually the opposite is true — you need to clearly understand some of the fundamentals of project management and project scheduling tracking in order to use Microsoft Project without making mistakes or incorrect assumptions.

As the size of the project team increases, and as the budget of the project increased, the value of Microsoft Project increases to the organization in understanding, making decisions about and managing the work that is taking place.

Much of the value of Project is in identifying as early as possible any problems that are developing.  The time sequence is very straightforward — the sooner a problem is identified, the greater the chance it can be resolved or mitigated with a minimum of adverse impact – cost overruns and quality problems.  The later the problem is identified, the large the cost to correct, the greater the impact on timelines and results.

Microsoft Project Resources


The Microsoft Project User Group is a national organization with excellent and timely newsletters, meaningful content and online training.

Microsoft Project is a scheduling engine.

You enter the rules and requirements, and it calculates the timings and outcomes.  And that is where its value lies, as projects grow larger.

If you are developing software, and the market for contract software developers is hot and you find you need to pay 16% more than you initially estimated, Project can calculate a revised budget.  If a manager decides the project needs to be completed four months sooner than originally planned, Project is the tool to arrive at which combinations of circumstances make that possible.
