“What is resource planning? I wasn’t aware this existed to help my business. Please tell me more.”
Resource planning is exactly what it says on the tin.
Planning your resources.
Your resources are your organisation’s people, time and budget.
It is a clear and systematic process used to optimise your organisation resources.
It requires careful project management, timekeeping and sticking to a budget.
Resource planning is essential when scaling up your business. It relies on strong communication, lots of data and the foresight to know what you need and when; without the disruption to normal daily activities.
The ultimate goal of resource planning is to make sure your business has the required resources, whilst ensuring your organisation is still turning a profit.
