Organized Work: Better organize and manage work and people to ensure that projects are delivered on time and within budget. Organize your work more effectively with powerful scheduling capabilities. Track and evaluate the impact of schedule and resource changes to your overall project plans. Customize plans to capture information specific to your projects. Display the project information you want to review. Focus on information that needs your attention with filters and groups.
Compelling Communications: Convey your project plans and status effectively and succinctly. Increase your impact at work and create better presentations by easily transferring information from Project Standard 2003 into other Office programs such as Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003, and Microsoft Office Visio 2003. Communicate more clearly using new printing enhancements to print one-page printouts of project schedules. Share project information with team members by saving Project (MPP) files to a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services site. Windows SharePoint Services is a component of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 that enables users to create Web sites for information sharing and document collaboration.
Ease of Use: Enhance your productivity and effectiveness by learning and applying project management practices easily. Get started quickly with tools that assist you with project management methodology, so you can set up schedules and manage resources more effectively. Access online help and training for relevant, up-to-date support and assistance. Download a template from Templates on Microsoft Office Online, rather than starting a project from scratch. Use familiar tools to do work that is more sophisticated and has more of an impact without the need for extensive training. Save time by moving project information easily between Microsoft Office Project 2003 and other Microsoft Office programs, such as Microsoft Office Excel 2003. Navigate and learn Microsoft Office Project Standard 2003 quickly with an updated interface that is consistent with Microsoft Office 2003 programs.

Used in conjunction with Project Server and Project Professional 2003 the program now allows project tasks to appear in Outlook calendars and messaging. As a project manager, I find this feature eases communications with team members and fosters greater team participation.
This ease of communication saves time and money. If you have doubts over this upgrade, my unequivocal recommendation is to proceed. The software's tight integration with other Microsoft Office Products, including Outlook, enables you to focus on project goals, not the technology that supports them.
