How Kimble Solves the Reactive Resourcing Problem
Ensuring a team with the right mix of skills and experience is ready to go at the start of each project is complex and time-sensitive. Resource managers know better than anyone the costs associated with resourcing in a reactive manner. However, it takes more than one person or team to build a more proactive resourcing process.
This paper explores some of the ways that Kimble can help resource managers to succeed in their roles and help drive improved and predictable business performance.
In this white paper, we cover three major resourcing challenges:
- Lack of confidence in forecast and pipeline data reduce the chances of proactive capacity planning — which is key in staying one step ahead of customer demands and making informed and strategic resourcing decisions.
- It is difficult to get an accurate and up to date view of resource availability, skills, or experience, leading to reactive decisions that negatively impact the financials of the project.
- Collaboration between the resourcing and sales team during the proposal phase could be more efficient, which reduces the chances that what is sold is actually delivered, and that the right resources are recruited before it’s too late.
