Tips and Tricks: Get the scoop quickly

The biggest question in project management is: How is my project going? The quickest way to learn this is to take a look at the Project Statistics dialog box in Project 2007. To get to this, on the Project Menu, click Project Information, and then click the Statistics button.


At a glance, you can find the following:

  • At the top, you can review start and finish dates for the currently estimated, baseline, and actual  dates, as well as the variances.

  • At the bottom, you can review the current, baseline, actual, and remaining values for duration, work, and cost.

Now, wouldn’t it nice if doing your taxes and balancing your checkbook were this easy?
