MGMT404 Week 2 iLab Tutorial Transcript Welcome back. Last week, we created project tasks in Microsoft Project for the ACME Construction project. This week, we’ll determine how long it will take to complete each of those tasks. Before we begin, let’s download the Microsoft project file we’ll be using this week from doc sharing. From your course, select the doc sharing tab.
