Looking for human resource calendar template
Network:54



Hi All,

I am new to project management. I was doing IT project management since 2 to 3 years but after PMP certification, I started feeling that I can manage work better way. I don't have standard templates or anything. Since last two days I was searching for resource calendar which I can use to check availability of resources and team capacity planning.

I don't have any project management tool too. If anyone can help with Excel or provide template for the same that will be very helpful.

Please let me know if I am not suppose to ask such questions here.

Looking for some help.

Thanks in advance.

How complex this can be is dependent on how many employees we are looking to track. Is this specifically within your team? Projectized or matrix organization?

If projectized, and you simply need to track against multiple projects under your guidance, then a simple excel schedule tracker roadmap built out for the year with allocation spanning over time to highlight availability, overlap, or allocation.

If matrix, it may prove very difficult as there is more to track and the responsibility will fall to other managers to accurately complete the excel, and request team member allocation.

Without an official resource management tool and role, this can be difficult to manage and with a lot of overhead.

Hi Craig, I am working in projectized organization.. handling 5 team members. We have bimonthly releases. Yes I do find it difficult using excel for it, and its getting little complex to handle my team. But my organization don't use any standard project tools for management.

I agree with Andrew, How complex you are looking for
