The potential benefit

of both better

selection of

projects/investments

(‘Doing the right

things’) and better

execution (‘Doing

things right’) is plain

Rod Gill, MVP, Founder, Ace Project Systems


Two vital documents for every project

Business Case

Schedule

Obviously most projects have other supporting

documents (user guide, design etc)


Business Case Justifies Project and states what

will make the project successful

Should provide list of all deliverables so scope

and what has to be completed are clear

Lists Constraints and Priorities

Lists all Risks from which Contingency can be

calculated


Shows how project will be successfully completed

Must include all deliverables, constraints, priorities and

contingency defined in Business Case

Provides a vital communication tool on what will make the

project successful

When updated regularly supports good governance and

tracking of your project

Should be source of automated reports (up to 80% of all

reporting needs)


Added Value scheduling with Microsoft Project

Tips and Tricks for Microsoft Project 2010


Project Newsgroups now gone

New Project Forums at:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-

US/categories

For all versions of Project, different forums for

Project Client, Development and Server

Great online support for all Microsoft products,

see you there!


Last Conference was Phoenix 2009

Next Conference likely to be 2011 (2 year cycle) –

not official, my best guess

See Rod Gill’s presentation at last year’s Microsoft

Project Conference in Phoenix:
