Tame Microsoft Project


This one-day instructor-led course is intended for Microsoft Project users that need to manage a schedule but will NOT be managing cost within Project. By focusing only on the scheduling capabilities of Project, this course dramatically simplifies this powerful application, thus the name: Tame Microsoft Project!

In addition to the student manual, this course uses a Project Template (.mpp) and additional tabs to the Ribbon, both of which simplify the interface for the user.


After completing this course, students will gain the skills to:

  • initiate a Microsoft Project plan by correctly recording Project Information and configuring the Project Calendar
  • create a project schedule that highlights task dependencies and the critical path
  • assign task responsibility to specific people or organisations
  • easily update task status to show whether a project is on schedule
  • modify a project schedule in response to changes in the project, while maintaining a record of the original plan for comparison
  • produce schedule reports for management and customers.


This course is intended for Project users who need to use Microsoft Project to create schedules with clear task responsibility and to regularly update those plans with schedule progress information, but who DO NOT use the cost management or resource allocation views of Microsoft Project. The audience for this course could be people managing large or small projects, part-time teams or dedicated teams, and people who are new to Project.
