Resource availability is essential in an organization for successful project planning. However, when managers lack visibility into resource availability, they tend to overload existing personnel or schedule them to projects that don’t align with their skills. This can lead to burnout, poor quality of deliverables, and project delays.
Therefore, managers must have a high-level view of resource availability to identify and schedule the right resources for suitable projects. Moreover, adequate resource availability eliminates the need to hire additional staff during the project initiation phase.
