To successfully complete projects you must mobilize the project team, assign work and follow up its timely completion. Assigning resources resources helps prepare budgets which rollup from assignments based on resource rates times effort hours in each assignment. You can analyze and balance workload amongst multiple resources. As well you can produce individual to do lists which help your team members stay organized and on schedule. Initially you may not know who will be on your project team so you identify generic resource roles and skill levels required on your project. Assigning resources to the tasks in your plan allows you to analyze workload by resource type and to plan your team size.
Projects compete for resources causing delays in activities when required resources. Analyze resource workloads across multiple projects with Resource Graph in Microsoft Project.
Determine when key resources are overloaded and resolve these overloads. When you identify specific resources to fill the roles you replace the generic resources in your plan with the specific resources increasing the workload and decreasing the generic resource workload. You can define shifts and vacations for each resource with their own calendars. Microsoft Project uses the resource calendars to schedule work assignments.
Participants will learn how to:
