This training and reference guide provides a comprehensive coverage of Project Management theory that is applied to the use of Microsoft Project 2016, from the project manager’s perspective. Our debut of Project Management Using Microsoft Project 2013 was well received by the project management community in over 25 countries. It has been so successful that we decided to convert that work to our new version for Project Management Using Microsoft Project 2016. We have improved the hands-on exercises with new features, we have re-captured the screen images in larger, improved quality and higher resolution. We have also added the new features in Microsoft Project 2016, especially the new Resource Engagement feature. This text has been created to serve as a comprehensive reference and training guide that presents the main principles of project management theory which is then applied to the best practices of using Microsoft Project 2016. When used cover-to-cover, this text serves as a comprehensive guide to running a project from definition and initiation thru execution and closeout, accompanied with hands-on guidance that shows how to effectively apply project management principles to the use of Microsoft Project. The hands-on exercises are delivered in appropriate detail that provide detailed, step-by-step illustrations, supported by actual Microsoft Project files that can be download from our training web page. This is the same training material that we use to deliver all our Microsoft Project 2016 training for our clients. Each chapter begins with a list of learning objectives and finishes with 25-50 questions that reinforce the learning that occurs throughout each chapter. For academic audiences, we provide the answer key for all questions and supporting PowerPoint slides for instructors. This training material and reference is also an excellent preparation guide for passing the Microsoft certification Exam 74-343: “Managing Projects with Microsoft Project 2016” [See: Microsoft Exam 74-343: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-74-343.aspx] This guide has been created to serve as the most comprehensive reference and training guide available, assembling content and best practices honed over our many years of Microsoft Project and general project management training. Many training guides on technology are primarily manuals on features and functions of the software. The goal of this book is to show why those features and functions are important from a project management standpoint (based on PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge, PMBOK), and then demonstrate how to effectively leverage that value in the use of Microsoft Project 2016. The information in this book was selected based on Project Assistants’ 21+ years of project management consulting, Microsoft Project training, and managing real projects with Microsoft Project with real clients in real project scenarios. This book is one-of-a-kind that covers Microsoft Project from the desktop all the way thru the enterprise capabilities, including specific training for: • Microsoft Project 2016 Standard • Microsoft Project 2016 Professional • Microsoft Project Server 2016 • Microsoft Project Web Application (PWA) • Microsoft Project Online for Office 365
