Resource Mobilization Plan
I am in need to prepare a resource mobilization plan for a large project that should focus on both human and non-human resources. Anyone who has worked on such a plan can guide me as what should be the essence of the plan? Or may be a template will also be helpful.

Is this a predictive project? If so? A WBS would be a good starting point once you have high-level scope defined...

Thanks much for the response.
Would look into how military is planning mobilization.

See for example:

Dear SARAVANAN
Interesting your question
Thanks for sharing

What development approach will you use in the project??

If you have done the WBS and the WBS Dictionary you are in a position to know what resources and people will be needed to carry out the project and when it will happen.

If you look at the resource management knowledge you will know which tools you can use
You need to have a complete breakdown of all resources involved:

Human
Material
Equipment
Financial
Other

Then you need to do the following :

1) For each category, do a breakdown for subcategories
2) Next Column: Indicate number of Man Months required for each recourse
3) Next, indicate the start date, and beside it end date

You will end up with a simple and efficient Resource Mobilization plan that would work for you regardless of the approach.

We do this for every project, program and portfolio.

Hope this helps.
