Resource Management

  • Resource management is the process of identifying, securing and then managing the people needed to complete the activity.
  • When securing a resource to come and work on an activity, consider the impact on business as usual and capacity planning for the team.
  • Consider how to ensure the right people are on the right activity by looking at other options such as backfilling or putting on hold less important activity.
