Microsoft Project (MS Project or MSP) is most widely used tool for project scheduling and tracking across industries. However due to lack of proper training on effective usage of MS Project, project managers struggle to exploit the powerful feature offered by MS Project.


This is a 12-hour training-cum-workshop spread over three sessions of four hours each. Each participant is expected to join with a desktop/laptop with Microsoft Project Standard running on their PC. We will train you to use Microsoft Project by creating actual project during this workshop.

Who should attend

Project Managers and Project executives who have to manage any kind of projects – setting up a new plant, managing a software development project, new product launch, nationwide large scale recruitment, new office set up and so on. If you wish to plan, execute and monitor your projects more effectively using Microsoft Project, this workshop is for you.

Pre-requisite The participants should

  • Be engaged in project management in their current or past work profiles. Experience on real projects will help get the best out of this workshop
  • Previous training or experience on Microsoft Project is not required.
  • Join the workshop with a PC/desktop running Microsoft Project Standard or Professional (any version from 2007 or later would do), or Project Online Plan 3. Please note that evaluation copy of MS Project will not be adequate for this workshop since evaluation copy has many features disabled.
  • Attend sessions on all three days. Each session prepares for the work to be done in next session.

A certificate of participation (in electronic form) will be provided to participants who attend the entire workshop.
