Session 1: Team Building Ideas for Remote Teams & Real-World Tips and Tricks in Microsoft Project

Meeting virtually is the new normal. Many of us are meeting new people and trying to build personal relationships with a 100% remote team. Cindy will demonstrate and discuss no cost methods that have worked for her and she will share lessons learned from several recent virtual conferences. Bring your own ideas to share so we can learn from each other and find ways to apply them to your next meeting.

Project for the Web is a new addition to the Microsoft Project family of products. It provides simple, cloud-based work management for projects of any size. Anyone, in any role, on a project team will be able to build and manage a schedule using their preferred format: timeline oriented or task board oriented. If you saw Cindy speak last year at one of our lunch meetings, this is a new update to that presentation. Come prepared to share your thoughts about this new software and how it may help your project teams.
