Managing Resources across your portfolio is crucial to your bottom line.
Managing resources effectively is crucial for business success. Resources are finite, making it important to utilize them in an efficient manner. Knowing what to look for in resource management software can help you to choose the solutions that will meet your business requirements.
The ability to visualize your resources and their assignments across your entire portfolio both planned and active significantly increases efficiency and reduces risks of project failure. Using powerful dynamic views, resource managers can quickly get fact based decision support and avoid painful resource conflicts.
Centralized resources is the key to increased efficiency.
Centralizing resources provides the most efficient means to manage multiple resources across multiple projects. Managing resources using disparate systems does not capture the truth about your resources are utilized. While it may be easy to model resources and track them using traditional means, the lack of seeing the relationships between projects and resources reeks havoc on managing projects downstream.
Resource management is easier said than done.
Some projects fail because of reasons beyond your control. However, managing resources is something you can easily control with the right tools and skills. Before you can improve and optimize you must be able to recognize areas within your organization that are causing resource management issues. Consider some of the most common resource management problems found at most organizations:
- Over and under allocated resources
- Unrealistic deadlines or schedules
- Disparate resource pools
- Lack of assignment visibility
- No centralized view of resources across all projects
- Lack of intelligent resource search
- Lack of dependancies
- Lack of process & control

There is security knowing that projects will be completed on time, and the resources are used in an efficient manner.
