Capacity planning at Portfolio level
By recording the availability per skill and making a rough estimate of the required capacity (in hours or FTE) per portfolio initiative, the portfolio manager can quickly estimate whether the available resources will be sufficient for a specific period to carry out planned initiatives.
Capacity planning can also work with scenarios. In a scenario, the initiatives and associated resources can be mutually shifted in time. The impact on available and required resources is then immediately visible in a clear overview. If desired, the changes made to the scenario can be applied to the active portfolio at a push on the button.
