How resource planning keeps projects running smoothly
Your secret for avoiding stress, bottlenecks, and conflicts
Resource planning is the process of determining what resources (such as people, software, equipment, and budget) you need to complete a project, and then allocating them for maximum efficiency
Your team wants to have an impromptu brainstorming session. You snag your laptops and head to your office’s big conference room. Whoops! Looks like there’s already a meeting happening there.
You head down the hall to a smaller space. There’s a team parked in there too. Have they been in there for hours? It looks like they’ve practically moved in.
Okay, fine. Your whole team strolls over to the tables by the break room, but there are too many people heating up their lunches or grabbing coffee. Your sightseeing tour of every corner of the office continues.
If that sounds like a familiar struggle (and we’re willing to bet that it does), then you already have experience with what happens when resources aren’t planned and managed accordingly. It’s frustrating at best. At its worst? It can completely derail your projects.
