(OP)
Any ideas on finding professionally designed actual MS Project MPP files (redacted where necessary) that could be used as examples of how to learn to design and use the program effectively.

I have looked at some examples on line but most were simplistic and not related to actual real project examples.



RE: Sources of actual MS Project files to use a example

You might be able to "weasel" a few examples from some MS Project training company. Tell them your company is interested in evaluating them as a possible training provider, etc, etc. Yes, it's a little underhanded, but the whole sales process is often underhanded, so I don't feel too guilty.

You can also check some government sites. If the project doesn't have a security classification, then their work is in the public domain. This assumes you are a US citizen.

Thank you all for the replies...

I have in the past, when involve in learning drafting and AutoCAD, acquired actual building construction hardcopy drawings from the local construction association. These were very useful...learning by example from the work of others far more skilled than I on how to create a quality drawing using standardized methods.

In all Internet searches I have done I have newer found even one actual MS Project plan in the completed state to use as a reference. This does seem a wee bit strange to me.

I will contact a few training companies for their opinion. Thanks.

Your reply does give me an additional idea. You could check with the local chapter of PMI. www.pmi.org

Thanks... will check with these folks... as well.

Found this scheduling document/guide published by the US Government. It is recent and appears to be a very high quality product.
