Microsoft Lunch and Learn, Gov community: Design Intent and Managing Non-Project work in MS Project
Understanding the design intent of Microsoft Project provides users with insight into Microsoft Project’s primary focus, project work, which aids significantly in scheduling, tracking, and managing project work. If your desire is to schedule, track, and manage a complete day of work, this understanding significantly aids in scheduling, tracking, and managing non-project work as well.
Prior to using Microsoft Project to assist with managing projects, it is critical to understand the initial design intent of Microsoft Project which continues today. This understanding provides a foundation for successfully interacting with Microsoft Project’s scheduling engine, and in the decision-making process regarding scheduling, tracking, and managing project work.
Once the design intent is realized, the presentation continues with a demonstration of scheduling, tracking, and managing non-project work in an effort to schedule, track, and manage a complete day, not just a partial day, thus creating a complete resource allocation forecast in the process.
