Understanding duration, work, and units: Microsoft Project 2013 Essential Training

Understanding the duration, work and units of a task will help you understand how the three are connected in Microsoft Project (part of the Microsoft Office suite). Duration refers to the amount of time between the start and finish of a task, units are the amount of assigned resources available for the task and work is the actual amount of time needed to complete the task rather than its full duration. This video explains each of these, as well as how Microsoft Project calculates them.
