The book is aimed at Project Management Professionals who are casual or new users and understand the software basics but require a short and snappy guide. It is the sort of book that may be read without a computer on the bus, train or plane.
This book quickly gets down to the issues that many people grapple with when trying to use some of the more advanced features of the software and enlightens readers on the traps that some users fall into and how to avoid them. It demonstrates how the software ticks and explains some tricks that may be used to become more productive with the software and generate better schedules.
Suitable for people who understand the basics of Microsoft Project but want a short guide to give them insight into the less intuitive features of the software. It is packed with screen shots, constructive tips and is written in plain English. The book is based on the Microsoft Project 365 and 2021 but may be used with earlier versions of Microsoft Project as this book points out the differences where appropriate.
The book picks out many of the key aspects from the author’s exiting books and adds a substantial amount of new and original text to produce a pocket guide that omits describing the intuitive and obvious functions and concentrates on the issues that many users get stuck on or find hard to understand.
