Most MS Project (MSP) training provides descriptions of the rich collection of features and functions that have evolved in the product over years of refinement and the many ways the current versions may be used. Twenty-five years of using MSP to plan, track, control, and report on multi project portfolios on behalf of clients have incentivized me to find the most efficient and effective way to perform these functions to provide what my clients want, save myself work, save my clients money, and have fun doing it. Some clients with long running projects and budget pressures have asked me to train my replacement. With the right tools the 25 year MSP process is teachable to the totally uninitiated in just a few weeks. This talk will describe the tools and the training process.
