Human resources are the biggest expense in IT. So it's no wonder resource management is getting a lot of attention. Earlier today I asked Paul Ewry, an Innotas' consultants with years of PPM experience, what is the typical way in which he has seen companies determine if they have the resources they need for a project? He laughed: "Funny you should ask, in over 80% of the meetings in which I have asked that question, after a few moments of silence, somebody licks their finger and sticks it up in the air, followed by nervous laughter from everybody." I'd love to hear other examples. But there has to be a better way.
