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 is to evaluate how your team members are using Microsoft Outlook. If they are using Microsoft Outlook mainly to send and receive email, they are leaving about 85% of the power of Microsoft Outlook unused.

By using Microsoft Outlook to improve project functioning, project teams have built in motivation to stay on track with reminders that can pop up periodically to kick-start self-discipline. With these techniques, the project manager knows the stage of each project piece. Using Microsoft Outlook as a project planning tool is a win/win situation. The instruction includes how to use:

  • Email in conjunction with the Task folder to facilitate the organization of project emails

  • Quick Steps to speed up communication

  • Rules to automatically route project information

Join this session by expert speaker Karla Brandau, where she will learn how the Inbox and Calendar folders work in tandem with the Task folder, overcoming hurdles that delay projects and creating a methodical way to meet deadlines. With Task folder features, you, as the project manager, can receive up-to-date information on the status of completion for assigned tasks for each team member.
