Getting team members on the same wave length, channeling their energy, and keeping them on track to finish on time takes meticulous planning and execution. In the planning and execution phase of projects, Microsoft Outlook is a valid and valuable tool. There is no need to purchase additional, expensive project management software.
The first step for managers is to evaluate how their team members are using Microsoft Outlook. If they are using Microsoft Outlook mainly to send and receive email, they are leaving about 85 percent of the power of Microsoft Outlook unused. With Task folder features, project managers can receive up-to-date information on the status of completion for assigned tasks for each team member.
This session with Karla Brandau, CSPPS, will discuss how managers, project managers and their teams can be more productive and keep on top of project deadlines. Team members will learn the secrets of making Outlook a tool for exponential productivity, and entire units can gain company-wide recognition for completing projects on time.
The session will help team leaders, team members, project managers, engineers, and group leaders learn how to:
Use the Tasks folder as a project goal setting tool
- Make additional Task folders for major projects
- Customize column headings in the Task folders, enabling the user to view project-relevant information
- Use Tasks and the Calendar in tandem to finish projects on time
- Set reminders
- Customize reminder windows with REAL information
- Use the To-Do Bar to maintain focus
