Using Master Projects in Microsoft Project A master project is a single project that consists of other projects which are inserted as subprojects. Master projects are useful for analyzing a group of related projects, such as all projects in a program. In this 30-minute webinar, we will introduce you to the topic of master projects and show you two different methods for creating a master project. We will demonstrate how to create cross-project dependencies, show you how schedule changes in a predecessor project affects successor projects, and show you how to display the critical path in a master project.

Leverage Project Online for Legal Project Management Legal clients increasingly demand that their attorneys abandon the traditional “billable hour” (or “time and materials”) way of billing them for legal services in favor of Alternative Fee Arrangements (“AFAs”) and other value billing approaches, but without Legal Project Management (“LPM”) the profitable implementation of AFAs in a law firm or legal department is impossible. In this webinar, you’ll learn how Microsoft 365’s Project On-line and Power BI business analytics can be configured to enable a law firm or in-house legal department to track and monitor its cases, costs and profitability in “real time” using LPM.

Webinar highlights include:
• A “Top Level” introduction and overview of Microsoft 365’s Project On-line and Power BI
• How to customize Microsoft’s platform for use by a law firm or legal department to generate “real time” legal matter reporting with “dashboards” and Key Performance Indicators (“KPIs”)
• A demonstration of how to use MS Project Templates for legal matters to quickly estimate costs, schedules and resource availability for common legal matters and to track and monitor such matters in “real time”
• How to get started on the road to successful LPM with the solutions demonstrated

How to Set up a Project Schedule to Be Used in my Organization There are plenty of organizations out there that use Microsoft Project stand alone to manage and control their projects. When we do not have a unified platform such as Project Online (or Project Server) to manage our projects, how do we ensure that the best practices are being used by all my project managers? In this 30-minute webinar, we will discuss how to create and configure a standard schedule that can be propagated and shared in order to be used by all project managers in our company.12/18/201811:30am CST30 minutes
