What is Resource Portfolio Management (RPM)
When we talk about resource management, we mean Resource Portfolio Management (RPM). Or – the most efficient allocation of our workforce for the most effective execution of our portfolio projects. RPM allows for optimal, cross-functional use of resources and supports resource and project decisions through Resource Business Intelligence (Simulation, What-if, Dashboards) – in real time, at any time.
Business Agility is a product of RPM
Business agility means much more than agile (scaled) project execution. It enables innovation, adaptability and transformation in a rapidly changing world. Hence, if a company is responsive, it ultimately means that the people in the company and their efficient methods are. In order to transform an entire business, you need to create transparency over its core – the workforce and the resource pool (…)
Capacity planning = The new capital budgeting
Digitalization has pushed an exponentially increasing number of initiatives and projects into the wide end of the yearly PPM funnel. Budgets are limited, but resources, capacities and skills even more so.
Portfolio management, with its origin in financial theory, once represented the most efficient allocation of budgets and resources, and could be matched to the individual corporate appetites for risk. But why is it that budgets are commonly known, whereas the vibrant potential of your resources´ skills and their capacities remains mainly in the unknown? Why is it that dealing with resources is so much harder than dealing with budgets? The answer is that resources have so much more dimensions than a simple currency value, that we must take into account for sustainable business value. In addition to that, companies who have a low resource management maturity and use the wrong tools for resource planning, will more likely be overpassed by their competitors.
The resource management tool
Tools and resource-based business intelligence play a central role in resource planning and execution, since the scope and complexity can no longer be managed in Excel. Today, precise capacity planning, simulation and forecasting must be supported by software. And once set up correctly, there are endless possibilities for a next generation enterprise resource management.
Our clients have stopped managing resources in Excel, cumbersome PPM tools or supposed all-rounders. The tool that has convinced our clients and us for years, and has been repeatedly recognized by Gartner as the state-of-the-art tool in resource management, is Tempus Resource from ProSymmetry. In August 2022 ProSymmetry’s Tempus Resource has been included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Adaptive Project Management and Reporting.
