Dates:

 

webinar_icon_new2-140x106

Do you have a good understanding of your resourcing needs and availability next week? What about next month? Do you have the ability to make critical resourcing decisions as changes are introduced to your current plans?

Organizations are still being asked to “do more with less” and though headcount may even be decreasing in some cases, we still must learn to innovate with the resources we have by putting the right resources on the right work at the right time. Resource allocation and capacity planning are hard enough without chasing down a moving target. So how do you remain proactive while reacting to constant shifts in work priorities and deliverables?

Join Matthew Willey, EPM Live Product Manager and popular webinar speaker Andy Jordan, President of Roffensian Consulting Inc., for this one hour webinar to gain insight into the five key differentiators that separate proactive resource management organizations from reactive resource tracking organizations. Webinar topics include:

1. A view that goes beyond projects

2. The importance of capacity planning

3. Value based resourcing

4. Breaking down resource silos

5. Resource social collaboration
