After developing your schedule, you need to plan your resource allocation. Planning your personnel needs begins with identifying whom you need and how much effort they have to invest. This analysis provides you with a clear description of accountability and responsibility, a way to track costs and work assignments, and an identification of when too many or too few resources are being assigned.
This webinar will explore how to most effectively apply both the human and non-human resources to project tasks that you require to achieve your project's outcome.Once you have identified and allocated your available resources, you must "level"how those resources are used across the project. This will also be covered in this webinar as we move through the content.
