An Introduction to Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project is the world's most popular project management software. The application is designed to assist project managers in developing plans, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing budgets and analysing workloads.

The Start: Microsoft Project was initially proposed by Microsoft's Manager of Product Development, Alan M. Boyd, as an internal tool to help manage the huge number of software projects that were in development at any time inside the company. Boyd wrote the specification and engaged a local Seattle company to develop the prototype.
