SharePoint 2010: Project Management DVD
Project management has spawned a great many tools over the last decade. Unfortunately, many of them are out of reach for small to mid-size organizations, or may be overkill for the day to day needs of many users. Even teams in large organizations sometimes have problems adapting large, rigid tools to their particular needs. Whether you find yourself struggling to keep up with your projects using one of these tools, or you have none of them and are slogging your way through with Excel – there is another alternative: SharePoint 2010 Foundation!
SharePoint offers a set of building blocks uniquely well-suited to solving the problems of project management. Since every organization’s way of working blends different methodologies, the flexibility offered by SharePoint allows you to tailor a simple solution that fulfills your specific requirements. The videos in this series cover not only the theory and planning necessary to build a practical project portal – but also the technical skills necessary to bring all of those pieces together. Best of all, then entire portal is created using SharePoint 2010 Foundation and SharePoint Designer which are completely free. Therefore the concepts and implementation details will absolutely work in your SharePoint environment, whether it’s Foundation, Standard, or Enterprise – whether it’s managed internally or hosted in the cloud using Office 365. Each video has full audio narration performed by Eric Eaton – SharePoint Architect.

Gary JonesThis new set of SharePoint 2010 videos is essential for any project manager who wants to get the most out of SharePoint for their teams. Take your project team from Excel and email to true collaboration with a central point for all team members to contribute and learn. If you’re using SharePoint for just document and issue tracking, these are a must-see. My eyes have been opened to all of the benefits of SharePoint I’ve been missing. Be sure to pay close attention to the sections on Rolling up information to management and real-time developer interaction on Agile projects.
|SharePoint 2010: Project Management|
|Level: Intermediate||Approx Time: 2 hrs|
|SharePoint Videos||Duration (mm:ss)|
|Project Management in SharePoint – Introduction and Overview||In this overview video, the author demonstrates how SharePoint offers several list types that on their own are simple, powerful ways to track information. By connecting these lists together and adding sub-sites, you can
build a central project management hub that changes the way you work. See the overall picture narrated and demonstrated from an end-user and project manager perspective. The best part is that all of this is created using the free SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010 products.
|Project Task Tracking||This video walks you through the standard Project Tasks list, and demonstrates how to customize it with custom site columns to track planned vs actual dates and show them in a dynamic Gantt chart.||15:02|
|Project Tracking Summary||Learn how and why you can use custom list as a Project Summary record to roll-up and display summary information – and how to make your task list automatically update that project record as progress is made by creating a SharePoint Designer reusable workflow.||17:26|
|Managing the whole project||Some project management solutions focus only on task management. SharePoint, however, can be a total project management solution.
