Topic: Forecasting Projects: Time, Workload and Cost

There are three forecasts you can make with Microsoft Project: Time, Workload, and Cost:

1. The time forecast will tell you if your project will finish on time.
2. The workload forecast will allow you to keep the workloads of your resources reasonable while finishing your project on time. A workload model will increase the level of confidence for all stakeholders that your project schedule is feasible and will end on time.
3. The cost forecast allows you to keep your project within its budget (while finishing on time as well). Cost models can predict when funding is needed; they can even project profits over time.

This webinar will demonstrate how to build all three levels of forecast, from the ground up.
