Microsoft Office Project Standard 2003 is used by project managers who need a desktop tool to manage their projects independently but who do not require strong coordination with other project managers or the ability to manage resources from a central repository. Project Standard 2003 is designed to improve your ability to organize work and communicate effectively and succinctly through familiar, easy-to-use tools.
Better organize and manage work and people to ensure that projects are delivered on time and within budget.
Organize your work more effectively with powerful scheduling capabilities.
Track and evaluate the impact of schedule and resource changes to your overall project plans.
Customize plans to capture information specific to your projects.
Display the project information you want to review.
Focus on information that needs your attention with filters and groups.
Convey your project plans and status effectively and succinctly.
Increase your impact at work and create better presentations by easily transferring information from Project Standard 2003 into other Office programs such as Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003, and Microsoft Office Visio 2003.
Communicate more clearly using new printing enhancements to print one-page printouts of project schedules.
Share project information with team members by saving Project (MPP) files to a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services site. Windows SharePoint Services is a component of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 that enables users to create Web sites for information sharing and document collaboration.
