Managing Subcontractor Projects with Microsoft Project
Outsource work? You still have to monitor contractors' progress. This course, the fourth in our series of in-depth looks at managing different challenges with Microsoft Project, explores how to best set up and manage projects involving subcontractors. Expert project manager Bonnie Biafore introduces approaches for working with subcontractors, including how to set them up in Project and incorporate their schedules. The course then explains how to set up multiperson team resources, assign subcontractors to tasks, periodically update the project, and review subcontractor performance based on cost, work, and schedule, and in relation to the overall project. Follow along with the sample Project file, featuring before-and-after examples you can use to compare your work to the author's. Note: This course was designed in collaboration with author John Riopel. The techniques apply to Project 2010, 2013, and 2016.
