Resource Management

Resource management

Microsoft Project enables organizations to proactively manage resource utilization, identify bottlenecks early, accurately forecast resource needs, and improve project selection and timely delivery.

Systematic resource request

Use Resource Engagements to request and lock in resources, so your projects are always properly staffed.
