An Easy Alternative to Baselining - Sir Ganttalot

A nifty approach to visually flagging changes to the schedule. I have my own way but this option is worth a look.

 

Critical Path in MS Project - Andy Makar

A good tutorial on how to set up a critical path.

 

Note: I grew up in the construction industry using SureTrak. I still find it easier to use and it presents a more visually pleasing schedule. However, Suretrak is not being supported since Oracle bought Primavera and is too expensive relative to MS Project. The most important features that comes with MS Project are the outline organization and the baseline/interim schedules options. Combined you have 20 times where you can "freeze time" on the project. This can be used for monthly updates or at critical milestones. Remember, at the end of the project it is very hard to understand what occurred 1 month ago, nonetheless 8-12 months ago.

   

With all that said, I have included three video's that will help you in establishing a baseline and then tracking your monthly progress. Remember, it is a tool for you the project manager or scheduler. Collecting the information leads to a better understanding of what occurred, why it occurred, and what you might do about it. Also, just because you are collecting it does not mean it has to be presented to the world. MS Project can easily be set up to print only what you want.
