More often than not, organisations have to manage multiple projects across a range of teams and departments, trying to account for potentially hundreds of different tasks and their associated resources. Increasing focus on one project reduces focus on others, potentially leading to mismanagement. Resource management allows organisations to broaden their gaze, with a complete overview of everything and everyone.
An accurate overview allows decision makers to see exactly where each project is, what deadlines are approaching, and what needs to be done to ensure project success. It makes up-to-the-minute tracking a reality and gives management more control over both day-to-day and long-term actions. It also provides a clearer picture of total resource usage, informing resource predictions for later initiatives.
