Of course NOT! What world do YOU live in? In this world, there are only so many hours in a day. We cannot travel through time and we cannot clone our resources. Accepting these realities is a key to successful project management and the ticket to ensuring your team still wants to work with you after your current project.

Project managers need to collaborate with resource managers:

  • All work needs to be accurately modeled for project and non-project work (operations), in current and new projects.
  • All work needs to be aggregated across all projects and operations.
  • Over-allocations need to be avoided or resolved.

Resource managers need to collaborate with Portfolio Managers, who need to prioritize their projects: The higher-priority project gets their resources first.
At the end of the day, proper resource management comes down to either adjusting capacity to demand (Capacity Planning) or adjusting demand to capacity (Demand Management). Eric will discuss both avenues and illustrate how these can be accomplished using some state-of-the-art tools (mostly from Microsoft). This presentation is a deep‑dive into dealing with limited resources.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understand the main concepts of resource management and how it relates to project and portfolio management.
  2. Awareness of the business processes required for resource management and some tools that support them.
  3. Be able to handle the challenges of limited resources in a variety of organizations and situations.
