Are your resources aligned to project commercials?
How well do your resource managers understand the commercial objectives behind the work going on in your business right now?
Do they ‘get’ what their work means to your bottom line – or are they focused more on matching people to roles and simply ensuring deadlines are met?
The distinction is an important one. Commercially driven resource managers understand project scope, payment milestones and income recognition. They’ll spot if you’re about to fall short of a monthly financial – and remedy the situation so your billing stays on track.
Too often, account teams are getting what they want as opposed to what they need. Again, there’s a difference here – and it could be affecting your bottom line.
As the backbone of an organisation, resource management can enhance new business development, project health, human resources, staff retention and, of course, finances.
There really is far more to it than allocating people to projects.
That’s why my one-day workshop, Effective Resource Management, has one core principle: commercial reality.
It’s an interactive experience allowing resource managers, project managers, heads of delivery – in fact, anyone involved in project delivery – to really hone their expertise.
