    Hi all,
    I’m currently in the process of rolling out a Resource Management Office for our Northern Europe (NEUR) services organization. In our RMO we will have several Resource Brokers working who will be responsible for handling all Resource Requests and Allocations coming towards the RMO from the different countries (6 in total) within NEUR. For those Resource Brokers I want to define a list of KPI’s and Goals as well as a list of minimal tasks they need to execute in their role. Is there someone who can give some examples/guidelines for this?

    thanks,
    Wim

    • Wim, some information was given in a thread about 5 mos ago, from two of our Advisory Board Members. It was in answer to a question from Susan Thomas. Scroll down to see their comments about objectives and KPIs. Hope this helps.

      • Thanks Debbie. I’ve checked the thread and it gives some good directions already. It would be ideal of course if I could find a Resource Manager in the community who would be willing to share a concrete example of Goals & KPI’s for the Resource Broker role. HEre’s what I have today in pace, but it is to my feeling not concrete, tangible and measurable enough.
