Why So Many People Have a Hard Time with Resource Planning

Presentation Summary

On the surface, resource planning seems to be a complex, detailed oriented activity. Things keep changing, demand keeps growing, and nothing ever stays stable long enough to declare success. Organizations keep asking how to get better with their detailed approaches when the answer is to reframe the problem. Determining strategic value FIRST is the answer and allowing slack into the system is the solution. All the rest is just details (and yes we’ll talk about those as well). Please join us for a thoughtful discussion on reframing the RM problem.
