Project is a powerful application that helps you plan and manage a wide range of projects.
From meeting crucial deadlines and budgets to selecting the right resources, you can be
more productive and realize better results using the set of features Project offers. You can
use Project to do the following:
Create plans at the level of detail that’s right for your project. Work with summary
data initially, or shift to a more detailed approach when it’s convenient.
Control what tasks Project can schedule automatically or that you’ll schedule
manually.
Manage tasks, costs, work, and resources at whatever level of detail is appropriate for
your project’s needs.
Work with your plan’s data in a variety of views and reports.
Track and manage your plan throughout the life of the project.
Collaborate and share data with others in your organization using rich view and
report formatting options.
Use resource pools, consolidated projects, and cross-project links to extend your
project-management focus across multiple projects.
Project 2013 builds on previous versions to provide powerful project-management tools.
The section “New features in Project 2013” later in the chapter catalogs the major new
features from the last several releases of Project and includes cross-references to relevant,
hands-on exercises in this topic.
