Why do projects fail without effective Resource Management?

Project and portfolio management can encompass a wide range of resources – all of which need to be managed. From allocating workspaces and the right equipment to sourcing the best people for the job, planning and organising a project from start to finish can be a daunting and tricky task – particularly for larger organisations where resources may be located in multiple locations.

Effective resource management can be the difference between project success and project failure. In this guide, we’re looking at how implementing effective resource management can help drive up the success of all your enterprise-based projects.

How can Clarity resource management drive more successful project completions?

Clarity PPM was the first tool of its kind to directly connect resources and finances, and this functionality remains one of the platforms core strengths.

One platform, enhanced efficiency

By having all the resource information you need on one platform, including financial data, technology, equipment, team profiles, tasks and workspaces, you can easily assign, track and review progress across all areas. There’s no need to log-in and update multiple platforms. Plus, a unified approach makes sharing project details across the team much easier.

Make more informed decisions

If you’re managing complex, large-scale projects, processes can quickly break down if there are constant adjustments to the task flow. Instead of firefighting and stumbling over obstacles to get a project completed on time and budget, resource management in Clarity enables you to access all the information you need to make more informed decisions from the outset.

If you still need to make a change, you can quickly make adjustments with just a few clicks. The software is flexible and keeps everything in one place, from team management to financial and other resources.

Optimise employee utilisation

Instantly find the best person for the job. You’ll be able to see at a glance who is available and whether they have the right skills and experience for the task. This ensures more efficient task allocation across the team.

Collaborate in real time

You will also be able to balance demand and capacity in real-time. You can make changes and scale-up your projects in a matter of minutes, instead of days.
