PRIMAVERA V6 TOOL TRAINING

COURSE OUTLINE

Creating a good project schedule is difficult enough without having to deal with complex project management software.

Not only that, we use real-world examples and hands-on assignments so you can practice working with Primavera P6 like it’s real thing. We’ll even review your work and give you feedback!

Project managers today are expected to deal with multiple projects of various complexities and manage the entire project portfolio life-cycle. While these may seem like daunting tasks, there are tools available that will help you organize and make better informed decisions on projects.

One such tool is the Primavera’s P6 V8 Professional Project Management that can be used to organize projects with up to 100,000 activities. It helps you with portfolio management, evaluation of risks and potential returns and determining optimal resource allocation to complete the project successfully, within time and budget constraints.
