Proper resource capacity planning is an important component of portfolio maturity and agile project and portfolio management. Well-executed, agile resource capacity planning is an excellent way to improve business health and profitability while also empowering your PMOs and PMs to take a proactive role in driving successful outcomes.
Optimizing your resource capacity planning strategy can help your business make great strides in becoming stronger and more agile — which is more important now than ever. The way companies do business is changing in a multitude of ways and strategic transformation is no longer optional. In fact, adaptation has become the new norm because an expectation of stability is simply not reasonable. Your organization needs to be able to respond effectively, react appropriately and recover quickly in order to succeed.
Change is constant and it is driven from multiple sources: from uncontrollable influences like world events and the economy to more common business factors such as competitors, customer needs and technological advances. One way for organizations to roll with this new normal is to leverage your PMO to create a lean, flexible and reliable resource capacity planning strategy. This white paper will help your organization and your PMO respond, react and recover no matter what occurs by helping you familiarize yourself with key points about capacity planning, outlining the PMO imperative, showing where your organization lies on the capacity planning maturity scale and how to move up on the scale. It also outlines the benefits of a balanced approach to resource capacity planning.
