About the book

Microsoft Project 2007 is an excellent project planning, scheduling and control tool. Project 2007 in easy steps will quickly get you started and making use of the powerful features of the product. It also includes project management concepts, which will help you ensure that your project is successful.

Beginning with first principles, the book sets out the right way to start a project and develop the project plan. It shows you how to break a project down into tasks, which can then be scheduled, allocated to resources to be carried out, tracked and controlled to completion. It explains the different types of task dependencies and how to use them to make sure things happen when they are needed. For medium to larger projects it shows you the best way to structure your project for success.

Projects are carried out by people and other resources; and this book shows you how to allocate and control the resources on your project, track holidays and vacations and even deal with people working on different shift patterns. It covers people and other revenue costs, together with capital and fixed costs so you can stay in control of your project costs.

Finally viewing and communicating information about your project in a timely way to the other stakeholders is also critical to project success; and this book shows you not only how to do it but the most effective ways to communicate the information.
