Project Road Map for 2010 has been released.
“The road map is a collection of 12 project management scenario “user goals” and overview map that help users navigate from pm methodology to Project’s feature set. A number of enhancements have been added to the 2010 version,” stated Microsoft.
- Pm maturity design. Examples for each phase of project management have been designed to lead user from beginner to advanced levels. Here’s one example from the cost user goal displaying the extensive “Examples from project management” section that provides a path that helps mature the project manager.
- PMI focused. The Road Map follows the project phases outlined by the PMI.
- Content variety. The variety of learning formats addresses the learning preference of users. The road map contain links to content on Office.com, blogs, videos, tutorials, case studies, MVP sites and book excerpts.
- Office integration. Help content from Office and SharePoint are integrated with Project Help to tell the story of how a project plan becomes more mature as it leverages the power of Office applications. Here’s an example of the Risk user goal that explains risk management using both Project features and Excel features, such as magic quadrant charts and Sparklines.
