Resource management

Ensure you have the capacity to deliver every project you undertake

Ensure appropriate resource utilization at all times

See precisely who is working on what

Resource and department managers can easily see the relative workload on each individual.

Anticipate and address resource and bottlenecks in advance

Resource bottlenecks reduce flow, increase work in progress, and add stress to staff. Clarity of resource requirements vs capacity facilitates early action so these can be avoided.

Know where the pressure points are

Set the capacity for staff and easily see the relative workload of each individual before assigning work or adding them to projects.

Re-assign people when circumstances change

Move people between projects in order to balance workloads and ensure projects have the resources they need.

Align delivery priorities across your organization

Clear project prioritization ensures that all areas have a shared view of where to focus their efforts, resulting in greater throughput, less work in progress, and faster delivery.

Understand future resource requirements

Capacity planning tools ensure departmental heads can take recruitment, training, or resourcing actions now to meet future needs.

Make current, planned, and future, requirements both visible and predictable

Plan your Requirements

Use rough cut requirements planning to quickly create an initial resource plan for each project.

Define which departments or functions should be included in resource planning, and use historical experience to estimate resource requirements for each type of project.

Capture estimates in standard templates so that project resource requirements can be planned with minimal effort.

Define resource requirements by month or by stage.

Set resource requirements individually, by projects/person, or set according to higher level needs at by portfolio/department etc.
