Resource Management

Why resource management often doesn't work

Are you using a resource pool? Do you schedule your projects using generic resources (systems analyst, designer etc) first? Are real, named resources committed to your project for the next 4 weeks? Ensuring you’ve got the right people at the right time in the right place can be tricky for any project manager. Here are some simple steps you can take to ensure you won’t get caught out.

1. Do your best to get to know the people who will be working on your project. They may be in other departments, buildings or countries. It’s important, talk to them, get in the car or even on the plane. They are going to be your team. See if you can help them with any issues they have at work. You need to know they are motivated and helpful to your project. But more importantly, you need to know if they’re not.

2. Do you have visibility of competing project priorities? If you don’t your resources may get snaffled away or worse, they’ll be assigned but not inspired

3. Have you got the best people working on the most critical tasks? If you haven’t, you need to factor this in to your estimates, provide close, sensitive monitoring and where possible arrange for additional support.
