In this section we're going to take our first look at resources, and by resources I mean things like that people that are going to work on our projects, the materials that we're going to use, and the equipment that's involved in building this house. There are some other types of resource that we'll look at a little bit later on in the course. But for the moment, for our house build project, we're going to concentrate on the people and the materials and the equipment. Now when you're looking at a Gantt Chart, which is a view in Microsoft Project that most people use an awful lot of the time, you're basically looking at the tasks involved in your project. If you want to look at the resources, there are a number of views specifically related to resources. Now if I click on the button below Gantt Chart there on the Task tab on the left, click on that, I get a list of available views, and one of the available views is Resource Sheet. And we click on Resource Sheet first and we'll see a list of the resources that we currently have on our project. Note with the view that you've got a label on its side down the side just reminding you which view you've got. You've got the Resource Sheet View. And another thing to note is that down at the bottom at the right hand end of the status bar, as I mentioned earlier on, you've got some buttons to switch between the most commonly used views. Now the button on the left, the first one of those, the one that's highlighted at the moment is Gantt Chart. So to switch back to Gantt Chart, I can just click on that and the one three to the right of that is the Resource Sheet View. So if I click on that, that switches me back to Resource Sheet. They're two of the views that you're going to use the most while you're working with Microsoft Project. Now let me set up some resources and one way of setting up resources is to set them up in the Resource Sheet. Now the first thing I'm going to do is to define a resource called Brick Layer. Now a brick layer is a person who lays bricks. And whenever there's some brick laying to do, I'm probably going to assign a brick layer to a task. Now it's very important to recognize here that I am not talking about a named person. This isn't the brick layer called John Doe or Jane Doe; this is a brick layer in general. And there are some situations, perhaps in longer termed planning, where I may use a resource of brick layer knowing that I need a brick layer but I don't know specifically which one yet. And there are some situations where I may assign an individual straightaway, but more of that later. For the moment, we'll just say brick layer. The next thing we need to do is to click into the next field which is type and select a type. Now in many ways this choice is the most important one of all. There are basically three resource types, although there is a special case that we'll talk about later as well. But with those three resource types, it's very important that you assign the correct one. Now as soon as I put the cursor into this type cell in the resource sheet, you'll see that a number of other fields got values on the right there. Many of these are related to cost and we're going to talk about cost later on, so I'm really going to ignore the cost ones for the moment. But a couple of these fields are important. One of the ones that's important is Max and the max field says what's the maximum number of this thing that we have available. Oh-oh!

In this section we’re going to start to look at Resources. Resources include the people involved in a project, they include equipment and materials used, and various other types of resource, notably cost associated with a project. When you look at a Gantt Chart such as this one you’re primarily looking at tasks. The table on the left gives information about the tasks and the chart on the right gives a pictorial, a graphical representation of the scheduling of the tasks, their durations, dependencies, and so on. Now tasks and resources are basically the two building blocks of a project in Microsoft Project 2016. And we link the two together using what are called Assignments or Resource Assignments. In this section we’re going to look at Resources and in the next section we’re going to look at Resource Assignments. One thing that you may have noticed when we were using the View Tab before is that the first two groups on the left are Task Views and Resource Views. And largely speaking when we’re looking at a project we tend to be looking at tasks or at resources. But there are many views that enable us to look at both. And in particular to look at the relationship between them. Usually so far when we’ve been looking at tasks we’ve used Gantt Chart View. And for most people that is the view that they use most of the time. Of the Resource Views a very popular view is Resource Sheet View. And that’s the one that we’re going to look at first. So if I click on Resource Sheet, this spreadsheet gives us information about all of the resources in our project. And at the moment as you can see we have no resources in our project. Now we’re going to start to add some resources in just a moment. But before we do just look down at the right hand end of the Status Bar. Two of the main icons there are on the left here the button to take us to Gantt Chart View and three to the right, the one that looks just like a spreadsheet, that one takes us back to Resource Sheet View. So you’ll probably get used to switching between those two. The two views between them are also very commonly used. Task Usage which basically lists tasks and shows which resources are used in a task. And at the moment we have no resources so there’s nothing being used. And the next one is Team Planner View which can enable us to look at how the work on a project is distributed between a team. Now at the moment we have no team because we have no resources to put into a team. So let’s go back to Resource Sheet View. Sorry, we couldn't fit the entire video transcription here since YouTube only allows 5000 characters.

In the previous section we looked at setting up the resources that we're going to use in our building project. And I left you with an exercise where I asked you to add a carpenter as a work resource and door and window as material resources. And I'm looking now at the resource sheet in example_04. Now I appreciate that term carpenter normally implies a much more skilled resource than somebody who fits windows and doors. And in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and various other English speaking countries, the term joiner would be used. But I believe that term is no longer in use in the U.S.A. Similarly, there's a fairly common abbreviation for a carpenter or joiner working on a building site of Chipee but you wouldn't use that expression in the U.S.A. So we'll start with this list of resources and we're now going to assign these resources to various tasks in our building project. So I'm going to switch back to the Gantt Chart using the button on the status bar, left hand button takes me back to the Gantt Chart. Now I'm going to right click on the task Build walls, and when I right click, one of the items that I can see on the contextual menu is Assign resources. It's just below the midway point. Click on Assign resources and I see the Assign Resources dialog which is a dialog that you'll use a lot when you're working with Project 2013. Now quite a lot of this Assign Resources dialog we're going to look at later on. For instance, if I click on the plus sign here where it says Resource list options there are facilities there, for example, to filter. If I have a long list of resources and I want to find a suitable resource by filtering I can use the filter facilities. I can also look at finding out which resources are actually available for a task rather than being used elsewhere. But I'm not going to go into any of that at the moment. We're going to do some of those things later on in the course. For the moment, all I want to do is to allocate the brick layer to the task of building walls. Now the very simplest way of doing that is having selected the brick layer is to just click on the Assign button, and what happens if I just click on Assign is that the brick layer is assigned 100%. That means one brick layer. And depending on the cost figures, the cost of using the brick layer on that task is indicated here. Now at the moment I haven't put any cost in. We're going to come back to cost later on. But if I had put a rate per hour and possibly even an additional cost per use, then the total cost of using the brick layer on building those walls would be shown here. I could go through now and assign more resources to more tasks. The first thing I'm going to do though is to actually close this Assign Resources dialog and look at the impact of what I've just done on the Gantt Chart. Now you may not quite see the same as me here but if you're still using a default installation of Project 2013, you should see something pretty similar. And one of the things that's apparent is that you can now see the word Brick Layer next to the task in the Gantt Chart. Now exactly what you see in a Gantt Chart is something we're going to look at in some detail later on. You can customize and format a Gantt Chart but basically by default you would normally see the names of the resources that are used in a particular task listed next to the Gantt Chart bar. Now we'll be able to change that later on, but for the moment it's actually quite useful because we can see that we've got a brick layer resource allocated to the task of building walls. Oh-oh!

In this section we’re going to start to look at Costs. And I’m going to begin by looking at the bathroom refit project. We’re going to look at some basic aspects of costs in this project. Then I’m going to set you Exercise 05 to do, put in a little bit more detail about cost in relation to the bathroom refit. And then in the section after that we’re going to look at a couple of other more general aspects of cost and we’re going to also look at the cost for the wedding. So first of all let’s look at the cost for the bathroom refit. And what I’m preparing here is version 05A of the bathroom refit project. And I’m going to go to the Resource Sheet and we’re going to look first of all at the cost related to the electrician. Now for work resources, generally, basically we would need at least a standard rate for a cost. And by default cost rate is entered in currency units per hour. You can express it, for instance, in cost per day but we’ll stick with per hour. And I’m going to put the electrician cost as $25 per hour as a standard rate. That’s the STD column. And I’m going to put it as $40 per hour for the overtime rate. Now as soon as I do that if I go back to the project itself, so let me just switch back to the Gantt Chart. There’s not really any noticeable different on that at all. But if I go to Project Information on the Project Tab and click on the Statistics button I’ll now see that I’ve got for the first time a cost for the bathroom refit. And it comes out, currently, at $800. Now the reason it’s $800 is of course because the electrician is scheduled to do 32 hours of work on the project. So the first fix electric is two days work. That’s 16 hours at $25. That’s $400. And then the second fix electric is the same amount, another $400. So let’s close that and let me return to the Resource Sheet. Now let’s take a look at a couple of other aspects of the cost of a work resource. We also specified here an overtime rate. And if for example I needed to get the electrician to work overtime, so to work outside the electrician’s normal hours of work then that is the rate I would need to pay the electrician at. This difference between standard rate and overtime rate can of course be very significant because it may increase the cost of, for example, keeping a project on time that is starting to slip. And sometimes you have to balance the cost of a delay against the additional cost of keeping on schedule. Cost per use relates to an additional cost for each time you might need to use a resource. This may apply to a work resource. So you may, for instance, have an agency hiring fee to pay or something like that. But it also could relate, for example, to a piece of equipment, the delivery cost of a pump or a special piece of machinery.

Project Human Resource Management
 
02:19
Projects often involve many aspects of an organization's Human Resources and its distinct functional departments. Successful project managers and human resource professionals who work with them must utilize thier skills in leadership, planning, and understanding of project management. Project Human Resource Management defines resources for the project team. It outlines the roles and responsibilities of the team and its members; defines tools for team development and helps manage team performance and group dynamics. As part of PMI's Continuing Certification Requirements program, a PMP credential holder will need to earn 60 Personal Development Units (PDUs) during every three-year cycle. Fortunately, PDUs can be earned in many ways including E-learning, attending chapter meetings and seminars and SELF-DIRECTED LEARNING. PMI will recognize activities that involve personally conducted research or study, including discussions and coaching sessions with colleagues or clients. Such activities should make use of informational materials like articles, books and videos like the ones in this course. Within this course, we offer daily discussions that you may choose to join.

You need to account for all holidays, vacation time, and all other foreseeable non-working time to build a schedule with any degree of accuracy. Microsoft Project provides the calendar tool to allow a project manager fine tune the project calendar with a great deal of flexibility. We can control the working times on our project by first going to the Project tab and then clicking on Change Working time. A dialog box pops up - where you can see how working hours are currently allocated on your project. The "project calendar" defines the working time for your project: which days are working days, which hours are considered working time in a typical workday, and which days are non-working time (such as holidays and so on). Three default project calendars already exist for you to select in the Calendar field drop-down list, as follows: 24 Hour— Continuous time from midnight to midnight, 24 hours a day. Night Shift— Used for overnight work that begins at the end of one night and finishes the following morning. Standard — The standard work week 40 hours, 5 days (Monday through Friday), 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with an hour lunch break from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. You can see in this drop-down that the calendar Standard is the default Project calendar as it says so in the brackets. On the right side you can see the work hours for a particular day that is selected in the visual calendar in the middle. Now if I click the Work Weeks tab here - default is selected and you can click on the details button to examine it. As mentioned earlier for Monday to Friday on the Standard calendar the times show here - in the grayed out text. If you want to create a custom calendar for your project you can do it here. We will see a simple example of creating a new project calendar - and then assigning it as our project calendar. First, click on Create New calendar button - a small dialog box opens up. In this case we will just create a copy of the standard calendar and give it a new name. And click OK. So, that creates a new calendar. But if you see here - it is not yet our project calendar. To configure that I click OK here first and return to the main window. Again in the project tab - I will the Project Information button - and the dialog box opens. Here we can configure the default project - I just need to select my newly created calendar and click OK. The default calendar will be changed now. To test this - I can go back and click the Change Working Time button - and we see our new calendar marked as the (Project calendar). There are a lot of ways in which you can configure the calendar options - you can mark holidays and other non-working days. When we get to the section on resources and scheduling - we will see that individual project resources can have their own calendars. For example if you have a consultant who works for 20 hours per week on a project - you can reflect that into your project. As a best practice, you should fill up as much information as you can about the calendar at the very beginning of the project. That is before you start creating assigning resources and doing actual scheduling work. This is to control complexity issues at a later stage. So in this lesson we saw that project comes in with multiple default calendars that you can use. Also you need to set up work days and other holiday related information for a project as early as possible. We also saw that you can create your own customized calendars for your project and set them as default. ENROLL NOW: https://www.udemy.com/microsoft-project-tutorial/?couponCode=YouTubeSpecial19

In this section we’re going to look at the basics of assigning resources to tasks. In the previous section we set up a few resources for the wedding project. Clearly there are going to be many more. But let’s switch back to Gantt Chart View using the button towards the right hand end of the Status Bar. And I’m going to choose one of the tasks and assign resources to it. Select Agree budget and approach, right click, and click Assign Resources. Now that brings up the Assign Resources dialogue. And in the dialogue you can see a list of the available resources. Later on in the course we’ll look at the fact that as the number of resources available in a project grows you may need to filter this list in order to find a particular resource or resources that you need. But at the moment we’ve got such a short list of resources that it’s easy to find the one that we want to assign. I’m going to assign the bride and groom to this task. I’m going to work on the principle that the bride and groom are arranging this wedding themselves. I appreciate that in many situations it will perhaps be family members or other relations or friends that will be doing some or all of the organizing. But I’m trying to make this not too complicated. To assign a resource all I need to do is to select that resource, in this case the bride is already selected and then click on Assign. Now when I assign a resource to a task like that it doesn’t automatically close the Assign Resources dialogue. You note there a separate Close button. But what you can see if first of all the number of units. Well 100% represents one bride. So there’s one bride attached to that task which is just as well really because we only have one bride available. And the cost of the bride working on that task is zero. Don’t forget that the rate for the bride chargeable to this project is $0 per hour. So if she’s working on that task for ten days then she’s still not going to charge us any money for doing it. Now one very important point I’d like you to bear in mind here and this is going to become increasingly important later in the course. Is that the 100% means that the bride is working on this task fulltime. Now in reality it may well be that she is not working fulltime and that she’s actually doing her day job most of the time and she’s just spending a certain amount of time working on, in this case, the budget and approach to her wedding. But for the purposes of this particular project and this will not be the case for the bathroom refit, but for the purposes of this project all I’m going to do is treat that 100% as being all of the time that she has available. That doesn’t mean to say it’s a 40 hour week or an eight hour day or anything else. It just means that all of the time she’s got available she is going to spend on that task while that task is in progress. Now fortunately while that task is in progress she doesn’t actually have any other tasks on the wedding so she can spend all of her time on it.

Now that you know how to assign resources to tasks the next thing we need to move on to is producing a workable schedule given the resources that are available. In order to do that there are a couple of fundamental things that you need to understand. And perhaps the most important thing to understand with Project 2016 is the different task types that can be involved in projects. Now in order to illustrate this I’m using a sort of dummy project, just a very simple project with three tasks in it, A, B, and C. Currently they’re each two day tasks and a resource, Jane, is working on those tasks. And Jane is working for eight hours a day. So on task A Jane is doing 16 hours work, task B 16 hours work, C 16 hours work and so on. Now let’s suppose that I provide Jane with some help. I say, “Jane, John is going to help you.” If I assign John to task A what do you think would happen? Now what may happen is you may look at it and say well obviously Jane is going to be able to get that job done in half the time. So instead of being a two day task it’s going to be a one day task. And obviously that is one option. But there are a couple of other options as well. One other option is that if John works on that task as well it will still take two days but they will do 32 hours work during that time. So with twice as much resource twice as much work gets done but in the same time. Another possibility is that we still want to get our 16 hours of work done and we still want to do it in two days but the fact that we’ve got both Jane and John working on it means that they only each need to devote half their time to it. So we effectively have three options. And those three options correspond to the three options you saw in the previous section when Project 2016 said you’ve changed information about resourcing on a task. Which of these three options would you like to use when you apply that additional resource? Now let me just show you that again. I’m going to now right click on task A. I’m going to click on Assign Resources. I’m going to choose John and I’m going to say Assign. Now notice the little warning sign on the left there. Now note that Project has assumed that in assigning John I still want to spend two days on this task but by having that second person we’re getting twice as much work done. So let’s go over to that warning sign, click on the dropdown. The default option there, the middle one, Increase the amount of work but keep the same duration. The first one was, Reduce the duration but keep the same amount of work. So in that case we would have said well we’re still going to do 16 hours work but because we’ve got two people on it we can do it in a day. The third option, Reduce the hours resources worked per day, the units, but keep the same duration and work. So we say it’s still a two day task. It’s still only going to be 16 hours work but Jane and John only need to work half the time each. Sorry, we couldn't fit the entire video transcription here since YouTube only allows 5000 characters.

If you don't create an accurate project workload forecast for your project team, you're likely to encounter problems such as: * Difficulty getting the right people at the right time for your project. * Project delays because your project team members are pulled away to cover their other day-to-day responsibilities. * Your project team is forced to work overtime (and you're forced to pay for it!) in order to meet your project deadlines. However, if you can develop a detailed plan and workload forecast far enough in advance, it's much easier to request those people, work around their daily operational work, and still meet the objectives of your project. Following are the steps that you can follow to generate this plan: * Use realistic task duration estimates. * Use generic resources to plan the types of roles needed. * Use realistic allocations when assigning personnel. * Add people's scheduling constraints. * Review resulting workloads and resolve issues as necessary. If you follow these steps to create a realistic project team workload forecast for your project, then you should be able to: * Secure the best people for your project -- exactly when you need them -- in order to keep your project on track. * Prevent project delays by anticipating when team members will be required to perform work away from your project. * Minimize overtime work -- and associated costs -- in order to play "catch up" and meet project deadlines. -------------------- BACKGROUND -------------------- Project Management author and trainer Tony Zink shares his insights on how to use tools and techniques to get better results on projects.

We’re starting this section from Wedding 05 and we’re going to look at Resource Leveling. The way we left things in the preceding section is that I had assigned the bride and groom to the tasks for which they have a level of involvement during the planning of the wedding. And we can see that both of them are significantly over-allocated, particularly during one period in the second half of December where they have a lot of different things to be doing all at once. You can see the specific tasks that are over-allocated with the indicator in the left hand column there in the display. And as I pointed out to you in the preceding section if we look at the Resource Sheet the two resources there that are marked in red are the ones that are over-allocated. And of course in something like this project we don’t really have the option of say having a couple of extra brides or a couple of extra grooms to spread the work over. In another project, such as for example the bathroom refit, if the tiler or the plasterer or the bathroom fitter had too much work to do you could possibly get a second person into help but that isn’t really an option for us here. Now one of the things that I mentioned in the preceding section, which is of course a very important thing to do, is to make sure that you have your default task type set correctly. Let’s just take a look at that now. On the Schedule page in Project Options in Scheduling Options for this project note that I have this project selected. So that’s Wedding 05. And the default task type I now have is fixed duration. Note also that I have the checkbox, New tasks are effort driven, is not checked. Now if I go back to this dropdown here, for all new projects my overall default is still a default task type of fixed units. So in the absence of a specific change for a specific project, that is if you like my default default it’s fixed units. You will obviously need to set that up in the way that suits you. It’s very likely when you are planning projects and as your projects progress that you will experience overallocation of resources and there are a number of ways of resolving these overallocations and we’re going to be looking at quite a few during the course. But before we do just one very important point to make is this. There isn’t some universal, if you like, panacea for overallocations. There isn’t one way of resolving overallocations, which is always the right way of doing it. The resolution of overallocations almost always involves understanding the underlying project, the underlying business, the underlying activity that your project relates to because you have quite a few, if you like, nobs and dials that you can adjust in order to get the best result when you’re resolving overallocations.

In the previous section I discussed some of the key points around project consolidation, the reasons that you might want to split projects up and the reasons why you might want to join projects together. And one of the key aspects that comes out of that is the importance of deciding on how to deal with resources. And in relation to our charity event we came across the first key issue, which is that if we start to split the event into separate projects we somehow need to make sure that those projects are using the same resources. And so what I’m going to cover in this section is how to set up a resource pool and how to share the resource pool between a number of projects. My starting point for this section is the ending point for the preceding section. So I still have my complete list of tasks here, Charity Event All, and I also have also open at the moment the individual Sports Day project that I created in the preceding section. Note that the tasks involved in the Sports Day project are also still in the All project, the one you’re looking at at the moment. And clearly at some stage I need to remove those as they are now in a separate project. But I’m going to set up the resource pool first. Now one of the key aspects of a resource pool is that generally speaking we set it up as a project with resources but no tasks. And quite often you’ll want to set up a resource pool right at the outset when you’re working on a project or a group of projects that are going to share that resource pool. So on many occasions you’ll start off with a completely empty MPP. Go to the Resource Sheet, start entering your resources, make up your resource pool, and then save that project but with no tasks. Now on this occasion we already have a good starting point for our resource pool because if I look at the Resource Sheet for the All project I’ve already got all of my resources. And I’m going to basically save a copy of the All project, remove all of the tasks in that project and that will become my resource pool. So what I’m going to do is click on File, Save As and then I’m going to browse to my normal course files folder and save the Charity Event All project. And the saved project is going to be CharityEvent_Resources.mpp. There it is. Click on Save. And having saved CharityEvent_Resources.mpp what I’m going to do is to select all of the tasks and I’m going to hit the Delete key. I now have a project with no tasks. But if I click to the Resource Sheet of course I still have all of my resources. And this is now my resource pool. Now let me switch back into the individual project, the Sports Day project.

Resource Capacity Planner - Excel Template - Team Capacity  (Hours) Planning
 
16:41
In this article, we will be taking up monthly capacity planning for a team. We will be using the Resource Capacity Planner Excel Template in this exercise. (Link: https://indzara.com/product/resource-capacity-planner-excel-template/) SCENARIO: We are responsible for planning our team’s capacity every month. We need to have a realistic view of how much work can be done by our team next month, taking into account the availability of each of our team members during the month. This will allow us to commit to our leadership on deliverables’ scope and if needed ask for more resource or to reduce the deliverables. Resource Capacity Planner Excel template is helpful in understanding the available resource capacity, comparing with demand and identifying surplus/deficit capacity by skill groups. The template takes the resource availability, holidays, weekends, overtime and vacation data to calculate capacity. Then, based on your input demand data, it can calculate the surplus/deficit capacity. In addition, you can generate an employee availability report. It can be used in different environments. For example, a manager leading a team can use this to plan capacity of his team every month. A project manager who is working on a multi-month long project can plan the resource capacity for the entire duration. This can also be used outside corporate environments wherever you want to compare demand vs capacity.

Build a Resource-Loaded Schedule Using MS Project 2010
 
15:31
This is an introduction to building a basic schedule in Microsoft Project 2010. I tried very hard not to drift into extra technical discussion about methodology or advanced software usage. The video is a brief abstract of the art of scheduling. I work with a lot of project managers that wish to drive the software for brainstorming purposes, but do not want to read a phonebook-sized software manual. I hope this is useful information for the end users. I also took the liberty of inserting some of my guitar playing into the intro/outro. Enjoy!

Project Management Framework
 
11:16
In this video, we will discuss the Project Management framework that we apply in Project Management templates available from indzara.com. Article: http://indzara.com/2016/03/project-management-framework/ Projects can be of different types and Project management techniques also vary with the type of projects. The simplified framework we will see now applies to most common project scenarios. Let’s begin with defining a PROJECT. A project has a specific end goal. Second, a collection of tasks has to be completed in order to achieve the project goal. Each task may take different amount of time/work, cost and skill A collection of resources that are available to perform work on these tasks Project management is the act of achieving the project goal by using the resources available and handling all constraints and any unexpected events along the way. A Project Manager is the leader of a project. We can see project management or role of a project manager in two stages: 1) Planning and 2) Managing. The first stage is to plan the project ahead of time and have a clear idea of the project before the project work begins. The second stage starts when the project work actually begins. This is where the Project manager manages the project to completion effectively and efficiently, meeting the project goal. During the Planning Stage, the objective of the Project Manager is to have answers to these questions. Can the project be completed by our preferred date? When will it complete? How much will it cost? How efficiently will we use our resources? Who will work for how many hours on which task on a given day? Answering the last question will help us answer all the others. The answer to the last question is the ‘Schedule’. A schedule lays out how we will complete the work needed using the resources available. On one side, you know the work (referred as Tasks in the picture) that needs to be done. On the other side, you have the resources that are capable of performing that work. On top of these, the PM assigns each task to one of the resources available based on skill. Given all that input, a schedule is built. Using that schedule, we can then calculate all relevant project metrics. It may take a few iterations to land on a schedule that is acceptable. The levers a Project Manager has are List of Resources, Availability of those resources, Assignment of resource to task and Scope of Task(s) Once we land on an acceptable schedule, the Project Manager finds the answers to the original questions and shares in a project report with the Project sponsors to get approval. Once approved, what we have is a project plan. We will call this as Baseline Plan. A Baseline Plan will include primarily key dates (milestones), the detailed schedule, cost estimates and resource utilization rates. Now, we wait for the Project start date to begin actual work, and our planning stage ends. From the day actual work begins, we enter the Management stage. The first and most important activity here is to track the actual work performed. Only then we will know if our plan is being executed. The Project Manager monitors the progress using reports and shares with project team and sponsors regularly. If actual work was performed exactly as planned, the Management stage becomes very simple. The reality is that many things may not go according to the baseline plan. Here are some reasons: Our actual work performed is less (or more) than Planned Planned Work Estimate was incorrect Scope of work has changed Resource Cost is different than planned Resource availability has changed These factors may make our baseline plan not valid anymore. The Project Manager has to build a new plan to handle all the new challenges and factors. Let’s call this plan the ‘Current Plan’. Using the new Current Plan, the project moves forward. It is a continuous process. This current plan will be updated regularly based on actual work performed and any changes that may happen with the inputs. Our reports will tell us how the current plan is progressing and is compared with the baseline to identify variances. Project Manager will continue to share these reports with the sponsors and the team as necessary. It is possible that the schedule has to be updated or rebuilt a few times during the course of the project. Finally, when all the work is completed, the Project Manager finalizes the project report and shares.

In this section we're going to look at budget costs and in fact including in that I'm going to look at budgeting in general in Project 2013. I hope it's something you've come across before but I do find it is one area of 2013 where people do get quite confused about what it means and what the relationship is between a budget and a baseline and actuals and so on. During this and the next few sections, I hope to explain all that more fully to you and to add a lot of details to things you may have used before. Now the first thing to understand is that a budget has nothing to do with tracking actual costs, even scheduled costs or scheduled assignments or scheduled use of resources and so on. A budget is purely a set of numbers that is, if you like, your best guess. It may be your budget in the sense of being a limit either to the amount of money you have or the amount of resources you can use. But basically it's usually there because you've been required either at the start of a project or even before a project begins to come up with a budget for the project. Now one thing you can do in Project 2013 is to setup a budget with various components very easily and then you can track your progress against that budget along with your progress against things like your baseline. So first of all, let's setup a budget for this pretty straightforward project. Now I must admit to an element of cheating here because normally if I were required to do a budget for a project, it would be even before I'd done this level of detail planning. Even here, although I've got a lot more breakdown of these tasks and more investigation of resources and so on to go into, I've already got a pretty good idea of what this projects going to cost. So I want you to sort of cast your mind back a few months before I had even this Gantt Chart and my bosses said to me, "We're thinking of putting together a new website and we're going to be able to do this on it and this on it and this on it and give me a long list of what we might be able to do. And we want it to work like this and we want it to work like this and we want it to be able to take this many visitors and do this amount of business online on it and so on." And then he might say to me, "Can you give me some idea Toby of what that's going to cost? Come up with a budget for the whole project." So I know that in order to do this we're going to need to get some specialist help from outside. We've got a web development company and we've got some business consultants who can help us with these jobs. We're going to do a certain amount of the work in house. We're going to be able to do quite a lot of the testing. We'll even be able to do some of the development work. But mainly we'll be working on requirements and elements of design. So I go away. I look at the last website development project we did. I look at how much complex this one is, but on the other hand how much more we've learned and I come up with some figures and say, "Well, based on past experience and based on what I think is involved here, I think we're going to need about 900 hours of our own time, in house work. Oh-oh! We couldn't fit the entire video transcription here - YouTube only allows 5000 characters. No worries, you can get the transcripts for all our Project 2013 videos offered here on YouTube AND a free 3-hour video course for MS Project 2013.
