About this Quick-Start Workshop

Following the completion of a Project Plan, the focus of the Resource Plan workshop is to create a detailed Resource Plan for the project. A Resource Plan describes the physical resources required to successfully complete the project. It includes a list of the type of resources - such as labor, equipment and materials - and a schedule of times when each resource will be available and utilized.

Workshop Outcomes

  • Categorize the labor, equipment, materials and any other resources needed to complete the project
  • Identify all the roles involved in undertaking the project. We will identify and list any role to be appointed within the project, as well as any contracting or business role required. We will also list any role which is responsible for or involved with the completion of an activity specified in the Project Plan, whether the role is an internal or external to the project.
  • Identify all equipment needed for the project. Equipment may include office equipment (e.g. PCs, photocopiers, mobile phones) and/or data center or telecommunications equipment.
  • Identify the amount (e.g. $ or other currency) of each resource required according to the periods it will be needed
  • Identify when each resource will be utilized
  • List any planning assumptions and constraints
