When you think about possible ways to achieve a long-run objective in your business, there comes a decisive stage – resource planning. It’s a time-consuming process that requires a lot of efforts and skills. But, if it is done in the most accurate way possible, you will reach the finish line without obstacles, qualitatively, and with minimal losses.
Roadmap Planner is here to help you complete such a challenging task. With this feature-rich productivity app, you will forget about cumbersome spreadsheets, endless emails, and sticky notes. Now, all your works, tasks, and goals will be in one document, letting you highlight the most important stages, and accurately track their progress. Moreover, the app offers you the Resource Planning feature that will make your goals more visual. Let’s start from the ground up.
What is resource planning?
The effective planning of all resources, including operational planning in units, financial and materials planning, etc., will give you a priceless capability to answer “what if” questions that may occur where you are not expecting them at all. This is a reason to start taking resource planning seriously, isn’t it?
It is not a secret that resources have to be scheduled in advance, i.e. before any project is started. However, this is far from a one-time procedure, as some PM’s or even CEO’s think, therefore, making a huge mistake that usually has negative consequences over time. To reach the winning results, you have to constantly monitor the quantity and quality of the resources. This will help you to timely reallocate them and restructure their economies if necessary. Don’t forget Bob Parsons’ words, “Anything that is constantly measured and watched, improves.”
Why is resource planning necessary to achieve the goal?
As practice shows, it’s almost no way to foresee all possible outcomes. While you are moving towards the ultimate goal, you may face a lot of circumstances which will attempt to deviate you from the road to success. The appearance of new competitors, world events, election of the President, and adoption of new laws are only some facts which can influence the project implementation. A thorough resource planning will help to steadily keep your course, avoiding unpleasant surprises. In the ever-changing market conditions, you need to be sure that nothing could deflect your purpose.

Now you have an opportunity to attach one of the required resources, such as Human Resources, Materials, Documents, and Budget, to your milestones, making the way to reach them more transparent. This is one more productivity feature to get the most out of your roadmap.
Also, you are able to customize each milestone by setting a completion date, changing its name, and adding notes. The latter one allows you to keep all the ideas and thoughts to analyze the situation as a whole and share this memo with stakeholders. For instance, you may add some comments that popped up during a meeting with partners or a brainstorm with your team to remember the details after a while.
