Resource Utilization/Resource Capacity Planning Tool ?
My company is trying to come up with an effective way to provide resource planning across all projects. We are small and new at formal project management and this has been a struggle across all projects. There are about 15 projects going on currently; however, the same people seem to be involved in most of the same projects based on department. Does any one have an effective template that they have used for resource planning? One PM has started to use a bi-weekly time-sheet to estimate who is working on their projects and how many hours, but that still is not solving across all of the projects.

Any template example or advice would be great!

You can use Excel but there will be lot of manual work on updating and tracking to be done
