Online training: Using project planning tools sensibly

Are you responsible for your first own project and project team and wondering how best to keep track of progress? In the VDI online training course "Using project planning tools sensibly" you will learn which tools you can use to optimally control your project!

Have the right tool at hand at all times!
Managing technical projects can be very complex - so it is important to know all the relevant information and groups involved at an early stage in order to make informed decisions. The documentation of agreed objectives, measures, etc. plays an important role in keeping track of your project. With the help of proven project management methods, you can equip yourself and your team with valuable tools that will make it easier for you to work together on the project.

In the approx. 30-minute self-study unit "Using project planning tools sensibly", you will learn about the essential tools in the context of initial project implementation in a practical way using an example project from industry.

In addition, all tools and documents presented in the online training are available for download free of charge on our LMS platform!
