Fast-track Project Training

Fast track Project training sessions are highly-focussed intensive training sessions delivered in short bursts to give busy people the essential skills they need in the shortest possible time.

Our fast-track Project courses are a quick way to transfer essential skills in the shortest possible time - useful for busy staff members unable to undertake comprehensive training.

Fast-track courses are suitable for a variety of purposes and can, for example, be used by busy professionals to see what's new in Project 2013. The following is an example of topics typically covered:

The first thing you’ll see when you open Project 2013 is a sharp new look. But don’t stop there. Look closer and you’ll see that Project 2013 can help you:
• Show off project data with a whole new set of customisable graphical reports.
• Talk to your team without leaving Project by using built-in Lync features.
• Trace task paths to untangle a messy Gantt Chart.
And there’s more…

Get started quickly
Instead of dropping you in a blank file, Project 2013 takes you to a one-stop center for starting your project. Browse the premade templates, import info from Excel or a SharePoint site, or just click Blank Project to get a clean Gantt Chart. You can open previous projects from your computer or SkyDrive from there, too.

Show off project data
Graphical reports
A whole new set of reports
Burndown reports
Burndown reports show planned work, completed work, and remaining work as lines on a graph. They give you and your stakeholders an at-a-glance status, letting you know if your project is behind schedule. Or ahead of it.

Talk to your team
Project 2013 helps you stay in touch with your team members. Get progress updates, ask quick questions, or even have long-term strategy discussions, all without leaving Project. Just hover over a name and start an IM session, a video chat, an email, or even a phone call.


Trace task paths
With a complex project, your Gantt Chart can start to look like a tangled knot of bars and link lines. To help sort this out, you can highlight the link chain — or task path — for any task. When you click a task, all of its predecessor tasks show up in one color and all of its successor tasks show up in another color.
To find out how to turn on task paths, see Trace task links.

Take projects into the far future
With Project 2013, you can set task and project dates up to 12/31/2149. That’s a whole century longer than before!

Explore other new features
Share meetings
If you export Project reports, timelines, or data to other Office programs, you can take advantage of this new sharing feature. Join online meetings and share your PowerPoint slides, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and OneNote notes from any supported device, even if Office isn’t installed.
Save and share files in the cloud
The cloud is like file storage in the sky. You can get to it anytime you’re online. Now it’s easy to save your Office files to your own SkyDrive or to your organisation’s site. From there you can access and share your Project schedules, Excel spreadsheets, and other Office files.
Work from almost anywhere
If you have Project Online, you can access a full version of Project from almost anywhere, even on PCs that don’t have Project 2013 installed. All you need is an internet connection and a PC running Windows 7 (or later). You’ll always have the latest version because updates are automatic. 

What's new in Project 2016

Project 2016 has all the functionality and features you're used to, with some added enhancements and new features.
Here are some of the top new features you'll find in Project 2016:
More flexible timelines
With Project 2016, not only can you leverage multiple timelines to illustrate different phases or categories of work, but you can also set the start and end dates for each timeline separately, to paint a clearer overall picture of the work involved.

Better control over resource scheduling
Some resources have limited availability, and may have their time scheduled by a resource manager. With Project Professional 2016 and Project Online, project managers and resource managers can negotiate an agreement, called a resource engagement, to make sure that resources are being used appropriately and effectively throughout your organization.
Important   Resource engagements only work if you're using Project Professional 2016 or Project Pro for Office 365, connected to Project Online. If you are not connected to Project Online, the resource engagements functionality will be hidden from view. Project Standard 2016 does not include resource engagements.
How does it work? When a resource manager sets up the enterprise resource pool in Project Online, he or she can identify some resources as requiring approval to be assigned to projects.
When a project manager decides to use one of these resources on a project, he or she submits an engagement request with the date range for when the resource is needed, and either a certain percentage of that resource's time during that date range, or a set number of hours during that date range.

The resource manager reviews this request, and can accept it, suggest changes, or reject it. The project manager refreshes the engagement status in the new Resource Plan view in Project Professional 2016 to see the resource manager's response.

Do things quickly with Tell Me
You'll notice a text box on the ribbon in Project 2016 that says Tell me what you want to do. This is a text field where you can enter words and phrases related to what you want to do next and quickly get to features you want to use or actions you want to perform. You can also choose to get help related to what you're looking for.

New themes for Project
There are now three Office themes that you can apply to Project 2016: Colorful, Dark Gray, and White. To access these themes, go to File > Options > General, and then click the drop down menu next to Office Theme.
