Event Description:

Are your Project team resources working on more than one project? Is their workload being managed? Are they over allocated?

For a project to be successful (and to keep resources happy) the team’s workload should be managed so individuals are not “over allocated” or assigned more work than they can perform in a given period of time.

In this webcast we will share the top 5 ways in creating and maintaining this balance. We will show you how this is done in Microsoft Project Online/Project Server and how the tool can enable you to better manage your resources:

  • Request resources be available for the expected timeframes of your project
  • Gather information on resource availability and what other projects resources may conflict with yours
  • Ensure all project managers are scheduling work with allocation in mind not just the duration of tasks. Gather hour or % of effort per task when planning.
  • “Level” resources so they are evenly distributed across your project as well as other projects
  • Communicate effectively!
