Building a Scalable RM Process to Execute your Employee Engagement Strategy
Important to linking your RM process with the employee engagement process is doing so in a manner where automation enables execution at scale. This requires a collaboration of the RMO, HR and Delivery functions since all have contributing roles and processes to coordinate. Key to this step are:
Creation of a well-designed skills database that identifies project allocation related criteria, including high-priority wants and skills development needs of employees
Utilizing a staffing algorithm that balances these criteria with the typical efficiency criteria more commonly used e.g. skills match and availability
Provisioning reporting to track how well the actual allocations are going relative to both efficiency (utilization and time to staff), project effectiveness, and employee engagement.
