Do you want to know how the professional project managers use MS project for scheduling?

Are you a beginner and want to learn to schedule with MS Project the way professionals do it without going through the soporific details of functions that are never used?

Hi all – In my 20 years as Project Manager I have successfully implemented projects for HP and IBM (amongst others) and if you follow this course you will know MS Project as much as I (and most Project Managers) do.

That’s all there is to it but it can be very powerful if used properly.


This course will show you how to create a schedule in Microsoft Project like pros do.

The course focuses on the most important functionality that is used in real life, on real projects. In my 20+ years as Project Manager I have only used the functions outlined in this course.

Project Managers simply do not have time to build complex projects schedules. Schedules need to be

  • easy to maintain / fast to update

  • easy to share / easy to understand

For this reason Project Managers only use a few (but powerful) components of the Microsoft Project / MS Project functionality.

This course focuses on what knowledge is required to build a solid and usable schedule. The type of schedule project managers needs, for him/her but also to present a clear timeline to peers and Management.

There are 3 main chapters to this course:

In the introduction, I walk you through the software.

  • First very briefly then

  • In more detail where I show you the main functionalities.

Part 1 will show you

  • The main functionality

  • How to build a schedule in 6 steps

  • Practice activity for each concept.

In Part 2 we will

  • Review some more advanced concepts.

  • Do a practice activity for this Part.

Finally in the conclusion I will explain some other functionalities that are never used.

Have fun!

Part 2: Advanced functions
How long do I have access to the course materials?
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Can I take my courses with me wherever I go?
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
