Project stakeholders have a vested interest in the project's progress so information needs to be tracked, recorded, and reported. A project manager needs to decide on the information to be tracked, and how to track it. Microsoft Office Project 2007 helps a project manager by making this process easy. Baselines and interim plans, for example, create benchmarks for a project's progress. Built-in views and reports helps a project manager to assess a project's progress. Project managers also have the option to customize a new view or report. This course explores these features of Microsoft Office Project 2007 and how a project manager can use them to address a project's tracking and reporting needs.
