Critical Path Analysis for Project Management:
I am a Civil Engineer and during my professional life I saw that when doing PROJECT MANAGEMENT you can memorize every single detail of the project, but if you don't have some powerful tool for scheduling each step of the project, assigning human and material resources and balancing them, identifying the key activities, the flood you have or not and where, it is very likely that you will fail to achieve the project execution goals or the target date for finishing it.
Critical path analysis is one of the most utilized methods in Project management for organizing the project, building the activities network, understanding the precedence or dependency between activities, finding the existing flood where it is available, identifying the critical path and project duration and much more.
There is also a MS software Project Management which certainly helps a lot to automatize all this office work before starting the project execution.
I am convinced that before mastering this with whichever software, you better master how to do it by yourself, and only after having a good understanding of that, you can learn how to simplify your work with the help of some software but having a good understanding of what is the meaning of the results you are going to obtain.
This subject pretends to provide you the basic knowledge needed to understand how the Critical Path Analysis works and then be better prepared to efficiently manage your projects with or without computing help.

Quickbooks is a leading accounting software package for a reason: powerful features, great user interface, good support, and a standardized platform.
During the Academic Year 2009 – 2010 I worked as a Computing Teacher at Inter-American Technical Institute, there I was responsible for teaching “Computer Business Application Programs” which included, among other, Basis of Computing, MS Word, MS Excel, MS Power Point, Outlook, MS Access and QuickBooks.
Later, for the last 2 years (2010-2012) I have worked as a bookkeeper and Administrative Assistant for two Construction Companies where I was responsible of recordkeeping all info related to Job Income, Cost of Goods Sold & Expenses, Payroll, A/P, A/R among other Clerical duties.
I have been able to reach and maintain an excellent performance on my duties thanks to the features of QuickBooks software and of course thanks to the experience acquired using it.
This knowledge is what I want to share with you trough my tutoring.
