Project Management for Smart People,‘Not Dummies'

Presenter: Dale Howard, Microsoft Project MVP

Director of Education, Sensei Project Solutions

As learning and development professionals, we all have a need to manage projects. Some of us are formally designated as project managers, but most of us are not. Some of us manage small to large formal projects, while others manage smaller informal projects. In this highly-interactive presentation, Dale will invite participants to share their experience with managing projects, and discuss the project management principles we need to know to make smart choices and manage our projects effectively.

Throughout the session, participants will see techniques for using a variety of tools to assist in managing their projects. Drawing from his extensive expertise, Dale will demonstrate how to manage projects using paper or electronic forms, using Microsoft Excel, using Microsoft Project, and using Project Online (an enterprise project management application):

  • Using paper or electronic forms as a first step toward formalizing project management.
  • Using Microsoft Excel to manage a simple project, understanding that this software tool has limited scheduling capabilities.
  • Using Microsoft Project to manage small to large projects, taking advantage of the full capabilities of the tool to manage the project schedule.
  • Using Project Online to manage projects in an online collaborative environment, which will allow team members to submit project progress and to allow executives to view the status of projects, programs, and portfolios.

At the end of the session each participant will receive a handout of project management tips, principles, and best practices.
