Final Thoughts on the Course

2m 30s

This is a very good course, Michael explained in very detailed all the aspects of progress reporting and what’s happening behind the scenes when P6 calculates Earned Value Management. I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know exists, like financial periods buckets, which are a great feature and solve a big problem in reporting, when the previous dates are stored as were performed and not redistributed by P6. Also I have seen great features in reporting...
