Latest Resource Management Institute survey takes in-depth look at skills tracking and management in Professional/Consulting services, Enterprise/IT services, and Product Development organizations
Cincinnati, February 6, 2019: The Resource Management Institute, dedicated to the advancement of resource and workforce management thought leadership, has released the results of its latest survey providing the industry’s most in-depth look yet at skills tracking and management in three different project-based domains. Research findings show addressing the basics of building and managing an effective skills database will drive industry improvements in resource management effectiveness for Professional/Consulting services, Enterprise/IT services, and Product Development organizations.
The research survey also discovered nearly 60 percent of respondents were not satisfied with their PSA/PPM/RPM tool and were likely to replace their current solution with a new tool identifying a real opportunity for solution providers to improve capabilities for tracking and managing skills.
“The skills database is the backbone of a good resource management process,” said RMI Managing Director Randy Mysliviec. “Coupled with a resource demand forecast, an effective skills database supports the provision of needed information regarding skills capacity, type, availability, proficiencies and more allowing service delivery teams to plan for and staff projects with the right people in the right place at the right time. The RMI will continue to put emphasis in this area and provide help and education to assist with this evolution.”
This in-depth look at skills tracking and management in three different project-based domains compiled data from 60 different companies including IT services, professional services and product development executives and managers, resource managers and resource management office leadership.
