I am a fan of Paul Harris as he is the only person writing instructional text for Microsoft Project that comes to it with a construction industry perspective It appears Microsoft Project has become the preferred solution for IT project managment, and has become enveloped in IT oriented literature That said this book is exactly the same as the wire bound edition I purchased 3 years ago, with the exact same typos There is no Revised Text nor are there any updated workshops from the original Microsoft Project 2003 edition, except that it now reduced from letter size 8.5 x 11 to 7 x 10 and paperback bound. This book may be used for learning Microsoft Projectsoftware as either a self teach book, or a userguide, or a training manual for a two day training course The book is aimed at project management companies in industries such as the building, construction, oil training organizations who require a training manual to run their own training courses people who wish learn the software, however are unable to attend a training course and find the software reference manual hard going A user guide written for project management professionals in any industry who wish to learn or improve their skills in Microsoft ProjectDiscover how to get the most out of the software up to an intermediate level in a single project environment using Standard or Professional versions The book is designed to teach planners and schedulers in any industry how to setup and use the software in a project environment It explains in plain English and in a logical sequence the steps required to create and maintain a schedule It has a chapter dedicated to the new functions available in Microsoft Projectand covers some of the advanced features of the software It highlights the sources of information and methods that should be employed to produce a realistic and useful project schedule It draws on the author s practical experience in using Microsoft Project in a wide variety of industries It presents workable solutions to real day to day planning and scheduling problems and contains practical advice on how to set up the software and import data It includes exercises, a large number of screen dumps, numerous tips and an index Training organisations or companies who wish to conduct their own training may have the book tailored to suit their requirements This may be achieved by removing, reordering or adding content to the book and by writing their own exercises Please contact the author to discuss this service As a project controls consultant I have used a number of planning and scheduling software packages for the management of a range of project types and sizes The first books I published were user guides training manuals for Primavera SureTrak, P and Microsoft Project users These were well received by professional project managers and schedulers, so I decided to turn my attention to Primavera Enterprise This book follows the same proven layout of my previous books I trust this book will assist you in understanding how to use Primavera Enterprise on your projects
