MS Project 2013 Best Practices Course – 101


For Microsoft Project training to be effective it needs to be integrated, applied, and enjoyable. By guiding participants through the construction and use of both sample and actual projects (from your workplace), we have found our training to be both productive, and well received. Other courses may show you how to find the product features – our course teaches you how use the features to produce meaningful results.
