The tool creates a Gantt chart that can be used for presentations. Using this planner for "what-if" upfront planning is faster and easier than trying to do it in real time with dedicated project software.

The Excel file also contains a PDF presentation with instructions.

The Resource Master Plan can be a living document that is actively maintained and managed throughout the life of an IT project. This also contains the Resource Ramp-up Chart to help plan project teamwork effort burn rates (and analyze their burn-rate forecast).
