MS Project Scheduling Training Courses

Nextgen Networks – Training Course
Wholly owned by the Leighton Group, Nextgen Networks is a national telecommunications carrier that specialises in high performance, premium data services for the corporate, government and carrier markets.

As part of uplifting Project Management capability, it was recognised there was a deficiency in the capability of Project Management related staff in the use of Microsoft Project for scheduling. Core Consulting Group (CCG) was asked to provide an experienced instructor and courseware.

With experience in scheduling and the Microsoft Project tool dating back to when it was first released in Windows, one of Core Consulting Group’s Senior Consultants was the lead instructor. CCG combined previous courseware, a partner organisation’s reference book as well as customised exercises to provide not only the tool “how to” but also the underlying “how to plan”. As part of service provision Core Consulting Group also provided Nextgen with a number of MS Project innovations.

Participants provided positive feedback and Nextgen indicated they were happy with the result, particularly the improved quality of schedules which resulted.
