Part VI: Managing and Tracking the Project > Tracking Work on the Project

Hour 20. Tracking Work on the Project

If you have been applying the lessons in this book to your own project, you should have a finalized schedule or plan for completing the project on time and within budget—like an architect's plan for a building that meets all the builder's requirements. Now your role as a project manager shifts from planning the project to managing the plan as conditions change. This hour discusses making the transition from using the Microsoft Project document as a preproduction planning device to a working blueprint that helps you manage the project and meet the project goals on time and within the budget.

In this hour, you will learn:

  • The logic behind tracking your plan in Project

  • Which Project fields are used for tracking

  • What tracking tools are available in Project

  • When and how to enter actual progress values

  • How to reschedule work for interrupted or delayed tasks
