Primavera P6 Professional Project Management YouTube Channel
Primavera P6 Professional is a powerful project management tool. It has so many features and is capable of doing so much to support project delivery, there is a chance that you aren’t using it to its full capacity.
YouTube is a great source of quick tutorials when you just want a reminder after you’ve completed your Primavera P6 training course but don’t want to have to flick through a heavy user guide. However, YouTube isn’t the easiest search engine to use and many channels are no longer updated or have broken links. We have done the hard work for you and found three reliable project management YouTube channels that cover all things Primavera.
1. Oracle Learning
Oracle Learning is the official education channel for Oracle products, so here you will find a range of training materials for all the different software solutions the company provides. There is a playlist for Oracle EPPM that covers many of the core features in quick, bite-sized videos. For example, you can get the headlines on how to level resources, use dashboards and portfolio, assign roles and more.
The search function on the channel will help you find what you are looking for: there are also videos on Primavera Unifier as well as technical instructions on the platform and infrastructure that your IT team might find helpful.
Our own YouTube channel for project management videos also includes our Primavera P6 short training clips. Our videos are made by experienced consultants who have real life knowledge of how the software works, so we never approach our content from the perspective of theory. It’s always tied back to how you can best use a particular feature in the workplace in order to make better decisions about managing your projects.
The video below gives you an idea and there are many more tips and tricks on our channel.
Oracle’s main channel also has some Primavera content. A search within the videos brings up a range of case studies and interviews that will help you understand what’s possible with the power of Primavera P6 Professional. If you are wondering whether Primavera P6 will work for you, or what it is capable of, then the Oracle project management videos will show you and your executive team just what can be achieved when your team knows how to use this software effectively.
3 Tips for how to use video training
Once you’ve subscribed to the channel, then what? Here are three quick tips to get the most out of your project management YouTube time:
- Switch on captions. Giving your brain something to follow along with can help you focus on the video without being distracted.
- Pause and take notes. YouTube Primavera P6 videos are typically short, with many being under 5 minutes. That means you can get sucked into watching a lot in a short period of time. Pausing the video to take notes will help you focus on the content and may prevent you from watching on autopilot without really taking in what you are being told.
- Schedule practice time. The best use of Primavera videos on YouTube is as a quick reminder – they often pop up in the search results when you type a keyword, or you can go back to this trusted list and search within the channel for the feature you are trying to use. Then make sure you have time put aside to test out what you learn and put it into practice. That will help you transfer the learning to the workplace.
No Primavera P6 Professional project management YouTube channel is going to replace in-depth training that will help you fully understand what this powerful software is capable of that. If you love the learning experience you get from watching tutorials, we recommend online video training for Primavera P6 as your next step to building your skills.
YouTube videos tend to be a snapshot of what is possible. A well-put together self-paced video training class has been curated by expert instructors to make sure you get the best possible learning experience. It will include exercises and materials to help you test what you have learned in a structured way. If you are just getting used to using Primavera P6, or you know you need to update your skills substantively, then we would not recommend YouTube as your starting point. Instead, take a professional course and then come back to your YouTube time once you’ve got the basics in place!
