PREMIER Resource Plan (financing, capacities, personnel)

General Information

The resources of a project include equipment and reagents as well as personnel, facilities, IT-services and funding among other. The following questions should be answer before starting the project:

  • Are all required resources available, including personnel with right skills?
  • Are resources being shared with other projects? If yes, when are they available?
  • Is there a preliminary time table for use of the different resources?

Is the process for ordering of goods within the organization understood/followed?

Possible Structuring of Resource Types

There are some open source project management software tools easy to use such as “Open Project” that can help in the process or planning resources for a particular project.
