In today’s world, the perpetual pressure of delivering more in less time is real. Squeezing in the crazy amounts of work within a limited budget and time can seem like a pain.
A project can only be successful when you have the right resources associated with it.
Finding the right team with the right skills and availability, splitting assignments between multiple people, tracking capacity in real-time - resource management is part science and part art.
And with Clarity Resource Management in the modern UX you can do all this and more !!!
The modern UX in Clarity includes the following Resource Management possibilities:
Investment resources: lists parent-level resources and their allocations investment at the child level. The view is also called the Resources view.
Resource-based investments: lists parent-level investments and their allocations resource and role requested at the child level. The view is also called the Investments view.
Requests: lists staffing requests grouped by role. The default settings allow the resource manager and the project coordinator to use a telescopic schedule to carry out staffing activities. The telescopic calendar uses the fiscal periods defined in the default entity corresponding to the organization.
