It is easy to say "Yes" to too many projects when you are trying to be helpful and provide value to an organization. This can lead to staff feeling overworked and burning out. It can also mean you never have time to work on your team’s backlog and other maintenance tasks. Resource Management can help you say No and align projects to resource availability. In this presentation, we will discuss a successful implementation of Resource Management in IT, what it takes on a day-to-day basis to support the initiative, benefits of using the process, challenges that still remain, and how other areas in the organization are approaching resource management with different mindset and technology.
