About resource planning
Climb the resource planning maturity scale
An organization’s ability to plan, prioritize, and adapt to change depends on their resource planning maturity level. At the lowest level, organizations are chaotically reacting without visibility into incoming demand. At the highest level, organisations are demonstrating control in planning their resources strategically, tactically and in day-to-day business operations.
Level 1: live the chaos
At the lowest maturity level, organizations are chaotically reacting without visibility into incoming demand. Chaotically reacting is expensive due to incurring last-minute staffing changes such as extra shifts, hiring interim workers or, even worse, delivering late.
Level 2: Obtain visibility
At the middle maturity level, organisations have visibility into incoming demand and the workload this represents for their teams. They are aware of what’s coming but not yet actively aligning the demand with the resource capacity.
Level 3: You’re in control
At the highest level, organisations exercise control in planning their resources strategically, tactically and in day-to-day business operations. They are pro-active and align demand and capacity far in advance and use structural solutions to avoid incurring last-minute expenses. They have insight into what people are working on, can identify bottlenecks, and run scenarios on-demand to adapt to change.
