Changemaking organizations consistently field the best teams. Your potential for success is built upon the collaboration between individuals that make up your business. The right people are important and so are the right systems to support them.
That is where resource management comes into play. As the services industry continues to evolve, effective planning and staffing is what keeps services organizations profitable and driving client satisfaction. You know your people drive company and client success, but do you know how to optimize your teams?
The following three resource management goals can bring you even greater team success.
See The Full Picture.
Whiteboards and excel charts simply don’t cut it anymore. Hyper-specialization, tight project margins, and quick turn-around times make effective resource management more challenging than ever. Your best decisions can’t be made without full visibility. Your team needs a unified platform that facilitates client data, project data, business data, and workforce data in order to have a complete picture of supply and demand.
It goes without saying that leaders set the tone for success, and resource management decisions can’t be made without the right tools at your fingertips. Project estimations, in-flight project management, and long-term projections are more accurate and effective with data-driven insights. Plus, managers can see where business processes break down and where hiring might be necessary.
It’s not just team leaders who need visibility. Collaboration and communication reach new levels when the whole team is on the same page and can see what everyone else is working on. It maintains accountability and drives employee satisfaction.
Utilize. Utilize. Utilize.
Utilization is a buzz word that is heard often but harder to execute. With all the right information and visibility, optimizing resource utilization has never been easier. Spreading your resources too thin or not having the right skill sets to deliver work are problems of the past when you have access to the right data.
Right Resources. Right Projects. Right Time.
No one wants to do what they aren’t good at and what they don’t enjoy. Human resource management is about putting the best people in the best places. Teams are more productive, collaborative, and satisfied when each individual is doing what they do best and what they care about. Staffing and skills assessment can be the most difficult and most important parts of resource management, but it is possible, with the right tools.
Your clients want the right people to work on the right projects. Staffing templates, talent matching capabilities, and workflows are available to help you do that well and consistently. The best teams are made up of the best people.
