The Standard Work Breakdown Structure is the Start of Maturity
In Versatile’s Microsoft Project training, we teach students the power of having a Microsoft Project template. Templates are created so that every project uses the same Task List, also known as a Work Breakdown Structure.
As we currently create a self-paced eLearning version of our Microsoft Project training, that issue comes up repeatedly.
The Project Management Office is the most logical source for creating Microsoft Project templates to use in your Microsoft Project training.
Some projects struggle with standard work breakdown structures. Mark Mullaly has a webinar posted on www.projectmanagement.com that addresses this challenge.
Every PMO Must Address Multi-Project Resource Visibility
By the time you have a Project Management Office, there are many projects floating around your organization. And with many projects, comes the challenge of over-allocation of key people across multiple projects.
In Versatile's project management training in Seattle, online, and at your location, we explain how to resource load a project. This process can become magnified in difficulty as more and more projects are added.
Add enough projects and you'll have the classic resource traffic jam. Project management training won't solve this problem. You need a powerful tool like Microsoft Project Online or Microsoft Project Server. Fortunately, Versatile's Microsoft Project training gives you a glimpse of how Microsoft Project easily makes the solution visible. Check out the many resources that Microsoft Project Users Group has to help you solve this problem.
