MS Project 2007 - A Guide To Practical Project Plans

Looking for a simple, practical learning tool for MS Project 2007?

You're not a dummy and you're no idiot. You want something that presents the fundamentals of MS Project (and some advanced stuff too) that's been tested in seminars and other teaching venues.

Microsoft Project 2007 - A Guide To Practical Project Plans leads you, step-by-step, to building better project schedules.

This book is not simply a manual. It is a system used by thousands of people to build manageable plans inside MS Project. The 9 Steps To Practical Project Plans have guided these individuals since the day they received the book. The steps hang on their walls to aid them in methodically creating the plan.

The 7 Cardinal Rules of MS Project keep you from making the same fatal mistakes others have. In fact, Rule #1 eliminates the major reason people struggle with MS Project.

In addition to providing the 9 Steps and 7 Cardinal Rules, this book gives a good overview of project management basics necessary for a working knowledge of MS Project. It takes you through a consistent example, building on the previous lessons so you can adapt the lessons to your daily work.

MS Project 2007 - A Practical Guide will be a reference tool for time to come. Here is what some people have said after using the manual, learning the system and applying the 9 Steps and 7 Cardinal Rules

Using the information in this book and understanding the mechanics behind MS Project, we saved 2 weeks on our manufacturing time and decreased our defect rates by a third. We have now instructed all project managers in our division to follow the 9 Steps and to not break the Cardinal Rules. We have entered all our plans into MS Project and intergrated them together so we can see overlaps and unutilized time.

Another user put it this way.


I think I am already ahead of the game with respect to being able to successfully use Project here...

One thought occurred to me regarding your class, which I did not think to identify in the critique sheet: I appreciate the way you organized the main points in your "9 Steps to Effective Plans" and "7 Cardinal Rules". While I believe that one should use caution on relying on checklists, it is a powerful way to assist the user in rapidly achieving success; one may then dig into the books and refine things later. Your rules address the "big rocks" first. Nicely done.

Tim Thorsen

We devised this system of methodically working in MS Project after years of use and abuse of MS Project. We all know the routine. Enter our tasks, put in our dates, attempt to manage the progress of the project and when a date slips, we have a nightmare of a time trying to update the plan. After much frustration and angst, we print what plan we have and manage from the paper. We think it is the program's fault rather than operator error.

Our simple approach gets you past the two biggest problems people have in using MS Project. As Mr. Thorsen said, we move the big rocks out of the way for you so you can effectively manage your projects.

The book describes the types of information MS Project provides so you can easily determine where your project may be slipping or, perish the thought, ahead of schedule. It truly is one of the most powerful tools on the market today, but without the proper knowledge about how to use it, you are overwhelmed by the power.

Purchase your copy today and get started to using MS Project the right way. The information you'll learn will quickly return the cost and more in your projects.

As a way of saying thank you for ordering this book, we include for no additional cost our whitepaper, "Training's Impact On Your Business: Cost or Investment?" This insightful paper will help you understand how to maximize the benefits from your training. The top reasons are not what you think!

Additionally, we will include our systematic methodology for performing Root Cause Analysis, a.k.a., RCA. From our experience, people discuss reasons for some failure but never really get to the root cause. They waste millions of dollars fixing symptoms and not the real problem. As a result, the problems occur repeatedly wasting more time and money.

Using this simple, methodical form, you can be sure you are fixing the root cause of the situation. Just like pulling weeds, if you get the root out, the weed won't come back.

We have used this method with our clients over the years and they have found it to be very effective. Even after we are gone, they still use American Eagle Group's Root Cause Analysis Methodology.
