Case Study: PPM Energy Microsoft Project Training

Advisicon provided PPM Energy with a series of customized training sessions on Microsoft Project Professional 2007 to improve their effeciency with the product.

Business Situation

PPM Energy’s project managers had worked with a number of project scheduling and management tools. However, they had recently adopted Microsoft® Project 2007 as their single, in-house project scheduling solution. Recognizing the value of focused training, they were looking for instruction and education on using the tool effectively. Given the size and complexity of their wind farm projects, they also needed to learn how to use some of the more advanced features of Microsoft® Project 2007. PPM Energy approached Advisicon to help them learn how to put Microsoft® Project to work for them.
