Project management is not easy, but it can be particularly challenging and stressful when you have many resources to manage. It’s a crucial project aspect that needs to be handled carefully because if you don’t get it right, your project will not succeed. 

Resources are the means we use to achieve project objectives. One of our primary resources is people – people with the applicable skills and competencies to meet the challenges of the project. When those people are improperly allocated or overworked or over-extended your project will grind to a halt.

Effectively managing your project resources is foundational to project planning and although important in the initial phases of project management planning, it is essential after you have finalized your work breakdown structure and have determined the dependencies among the established work packages.

This webinar will discuss determining and managing your project resources.  Without resources your project engine has no fuel. Mismanaged, misallocated, or underutilized project resources are a project risk factor that must be thoughtfully and carefully considered.
