Once a project's schedule has been set, the next question arises: how do you distribute your resources and capacities? Because only with an integrated, meaningful resource, demand and capacity planning conflicts and overloads can be avoided.
Conflicts usually arise between the management and the leaders of the individual projects. This is because the bosses are frequently looking at long-term, reliable capacity statements and resource requirements over the entire life cycle of one or all of the company's projects. The project managers are more interested in so-called bottleneck resources for their own tasks.
Suitable tools and concepts help to calm the waves. They can complement a proper organization and optimized processes for the different projects and help resource managers to build a complete and up-to-date overview of all resources/means of action and tasks.
Our resource planning professionals will explain to you how to manage your capacities properly with the right tools and techniques. We can provide you with advice or explain in workshops how to keep all resources in your projects under control.
RMRM is a model for evaluating the maturity level of the resource management in your company or department.
In short, RMRM allows you to determine how far your resource management has progressed and what level might be effective for you. The model enables you to successfully introduce and operate a resource management system that is tailored to your requirements and needs. RMRM gives you a clear overview of your current level of maturity and how your resource management strategy should be defined.
This determines the appropriate granularity of the resource management for you before you possibly invest unnecessary effort in a rollout of a resource planning that is not adequate for your requirements.
First use RMRM to assess the level of existing process maturity in your own company and see where you find yourself in the maturity model.
Examine the enterprise value at your maturity level.
If the enterprise value of the process maturity levels is important, you can perform a gap analysis. In this way, you identify which critical "dimensions" at your maturity level need to be expanded in order to move up to a higher level of maturity.
Important: If no added value of a higher level is apparent, then the current level should be consolidated and expanded! Moving up to the next higher level of maturity is only recommended if there is a foreseeable benefit!
Communicate your results within your company and get support to close the identified gaps from your current level of maturity to the next higher level.
Develop a strategic plan to take your company to the next level and work to get there.
