Course Description:

Course Outline: This course is designed to cover all the features of the 2010 Project Web App (PWA) likely to be used by Project Managers. The project manager will understand how to manage projects via Web Access, and also see how they will update personal tasks. Through Web Access, the project manager can also view Enterprise project data, thus enhancing his/her understanding of the effect of individual projects on the collection of projects. In conjunction with functionality training, labs are used to provide each student with hands-on experience. In addition, each student receives a workbook that describes each topic and its implementation using Microsoft® Project.

Who Should Attend

Managers who have already attended the introductory course and had at least six to eight weeks as a consolidation period, but who are also responsible for Project Offices, Teams, or even the whole organisation!
