Product Description

The only Microsoft Project learning guide in full color. Screenshots and illustrations come to life for enhanced learning and comprehension.

This book focuses on project management best practices with Microsoft Project and enabling project managers to build solid schedules that will reflect the true scope of the project and continuously forecast status through completion.

This book is closely aligned with industry standards from the Project Management Institute® (PMI):

• The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) – 5th Edition, by PMI®

• The Practice Standard for Work Breakdown Structures – 2nd Edition, by PMI®

• The Practice Standard for Scheduling – 2nd Edition, by PMI®

The overall goal is to teach project managers a practical approach to ‘how’ they should be using the tools in the context of industry best practices. As such, the book emphasizes the features of Microsoft Project and Project Web App that help facilitate Proactive Project and Portfolio Management (PPM).

  1. Excellent approach to proactive PPM 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2016

    This book is not yet another presentation of Project Server but it's a very good approach on proactive PPM implementation. It talks about the tool of course but not only, this is its added value and interest.

  2. Excellent Resource! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2014

    Would give the book more than 5 stars if I could. The color pages are a great addition. Highly recommend.

  3. Very User friendly easily readable book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2014

    This book is written with the Project Manager in mind. The concepts are clearly explained and easy to understand.

  4. User Guide, Meet Methodology Tutorial.... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2014

    OK...I confess I thought the folks at Sensei Project Solutions were pretty much geniuses before I read "Proactive PPM with Microsoft Project 2013 for Project Server and Project Online", so I am not surprised it would be they who could combine the "How" and the "Why" so expertly in one resource. Best practices combined with user interface 'how-to', and all within the context of the PMBOK framework. Elvis said it best: "...this is the promised land calling..."

  5. Must have for project managers and planners/schedulers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2014

    This is an excellent resource for project managers and professionals who always wrestle with MS Project. The visuals are easy to read which is not always the case, so you can tell the authors put a lot of thought into the content and quality of the print. It is a great companion to those who are versed in PIMBOK and PMI methodology as it aligns very well.

    A book worth having in your arsenal.

  6. Excellent Microsoft Project 2013 Reference Book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2014

    Many years ago, a friend of mine told me, "One cannot own too many books about Project Server." I agree with him. Even though I have been the co-author of multiple books on both Microsoft Project and Project Server, I appreciate the fresh approach that Kenneth Steiness applies to this book. His approach is proactive project portfolio management (proactive PPM, as he likes to call it), which focuses on how to plan and manage a project in a proactive manner using Microsoft Project 2013 and Project Server 2013 (aka Project Online). In his book, I like the use of color illustrations and color text to emphasize particular thoughts and ideas. The screenshots are crisp and clearly labeled. The book has numerous exercises that allow the reader to practice the skills presented in each chapter. Of special interest is Appendix B in which Kenneth documents how to create the custom views referenced throughout the book. Even though I have many Project Server books already on my bookshelf, I am glad to have one more book on the subject. Therefore, I heartily recommend this book as an excellent reference on Project Server 2013 (Project Online).

  7. Finally a book that is practical, helpful, and understandable for MS Project 2013! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2014

    It is nice to have a book that is written in terms you can understand about building and managing schedules with Microsoft Project. The author has an excellent mix of screen shots and graphs along with the step by step instructions. The table of contents allows the opportunity to quickly find a topic of interest.

  8. Good book to learn Project 2013 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2014

    Concepts are explained and presented very nicely, I use Project 2010 and I used this book to learn the new concepts and changes in Project 2013. Nice book.

  9. Fantastic book for Microsoft Project 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2014

    This book really assisted my business with Microsoft Project project managing. I loved the examples and the color added to the book compared to other books which use grayscale.
