Over the past 20 years tens of thousands of people have completed Priority Management’s Project Planning Breakthroughs course. A course that teaches the most effective method for scheduling projects. Using manual diagramming tools and a unique set of methods, our clients appreciated the process and the improved results they experienced.

However, the number one question always asked… “is there no software that can replicate these tools and methods?” The answer was ‘no, we’re waiting for that to happen.’ But it never did. Many of our clients tried to build their own software, without success.This has changed with the recent release of OVERGantt.

OVERGantt is the result of 4 years of development. Its key breakthrough is the capability of discovering… and verifying … the vast array of task links and doing this more efficiently and accurately than anything else available.

We at Priority Management Australia are delighted to be the first training company in the world to deliver a training course on this remarkably efficient new software.

By the end of this course, users should be very comfortable:

  • Understanding and navigating OVERGantt tables and views
  • Writing a brief Project Charter that links to the project’s deliverables
  • Creating a new project plan from scratch
  • Creating tasks, entering task durations, grouping tasks by deliverables, and creating milestones
  • Entering and verifying complex relationships simply.
  • Establish a resource pool, assigning resources, identifying over-allocations and leveling resources
  • Applying task constraints and deadlines
  • Establishing a Project budget using bottom-up costing
  • Visually determining the Critical Path
  • Project monitoring including baseline analysis

What should I know before starting this course?

This course assumes the user understands the basics of using a computer. Students should be comfortable using the keyboard, mouse/trackpad, and menus. Knowledge of project management concepts and theories is also an asset. No previous experience with other versions of OVERGantt is necessary.

Each participant will require their own Apple Laptop or Virtual PC with Catalina OS loaded.

The latest Numbers application needs to be loaded and also the OVERGantt software.

It is preferable that the computer you use has a minimum of 8GB of RAM.

It’s always a pleasure to liaise with Priority Management. As a participant, I found the online workshop to be informative, educational, fun, and engaging.”

-Claire Diment, Australian Chamber Orchestra - 12/04/2023

“A HUGE thank you for the OneNote training that I completed. Having completed courses previously, I was expecting similar basic content and a struggle to say engaged.

I learnt a lot and have already applied many of the skills that I learnt.”

-Danielle, Elserver

"Thank you Mario & Jackie so much again for putting together such an insightful presentation. As I mentioned, the feedback so far has been really positive and a few people I have spoken to in the office today have already made some tweaks to their default settings. Mario's presentation skills were some of the best I’ve seen, and I was impressed with how you were able to navigate between screens despite the technical challenges. Thank you again and I really hope you have a lovely holiday!"
