Here is the surefire method every beginner project manager needs to quickly master Microsoft Project 2016. One of Microsoft's very first applications created way back in the 1980s, MS Project has since become a standard and remains a constantly evolving tool for project managers.

MS Project helps you develop a plan, assign resources to tasks, track progress, manage your budget and analyze workloads. This video course, taught by a professional trainer with a background in project management, takes you step by step from the very beginning through all of these functions.
