Project Assistants published by Springer / Apress
We are proud to announce that our training guide, The Project Managers Guide to Microsoft Project has been picked up by Apress Media, a division of Springer Nature.
The PM’s Guide to MS Project is the third edition of a text that has been well-received by the project management community across 25 different countries since the release of Project 2013. It is an all-in-one training guide, textbook, and reference that covers each product of the Project 2019 suite.
Many training guides on technology are primarily manuals on features and functions of the software. The goal of this book is to show why those features and functions are important from a project management standpoint (based on PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge), and then demonstrate how to effectively leverage that value through the use of Microsoft Project 2019.
The information in this book was selected based on Project Assistants’ 25 years of project management consulting, Microsoft Project training, and managing real-world projects with Microsoft Project.
This text is carefully designed to serve as a training guide, textbook, and/or reference guide. Included with the book are hands-on exercises with step-by-step illustrations built from actual Microsoft Project files that can be downloaded from our training webpage. There is a robust index as well as intuitively organized and clearly delineated sections, chapters, and sub-sections for easy reference. Each chapter has a learning-oriented structure with objectives at the beginning and 25-50 questions at the end that reinforce those points of emphasis. We also provide all answer keys and supporting PowerPoint slides for academic instructors upon request.
