While MS Project® enjoys the largest segment of both the business and governmental project management tools market, users commonly report frustrations with using the tool, either in how it works, or in not understanding the methods necessary for the expected results. In his presentation, Mr. Smith will explain some of the key components necessary for reporting success with MS Project®, and demonstrate some of the nuances that commonly cause frustration with the tool. He will also focus on some methods for using MS Project® within a governmental environment, including techniques that provide insight into issues for different types of stakeholders, and methods for making these focused results automatically available.
